Thanks for the reply, the tag that is on the motor is ok, just not new looking. thought maybe someone was making replicas or i could buy blank NOS tags to give her the brand new look.

thanks for the reply, and yes the tag i am looking for is the shorter one. Looks like i will have to clean up the one I have for now. Maybe someone will start producing reproductions in the future

Yes .. it is printed on aluminum just like the original.
I've bought 5 of these from this guy and I'm really satisfied with the quality.
