Default Baker Monitor VJ cam follower help

Good evening,
I am wanting to restore a Monitor VJ I have had for some time and realize I do not have a cam follower for it. I have seen a couple of types in pictures and do not know which is correct for my engine. I do not know what size the engine is, but the piston is 3 1/2".
I have attached an image of the engine. The fuel tank did not come with the engine, so I do not know the correct serial number.
I have the detent latch even though you cannot see it in the picture.
Any help identifying the correct cam follower and perhaps if someone has one to sell will be much appreciated. It is okay if it needs repairs.
Thank you,
Scooter

Serial number is on the front of water hopper in that small square. The cam follower, I have a extra one that I had casted but it needs a roller and the detent catch.

Your engine is a 1 1/4 HP model VJ. Post a want ad in enginads and you should be able to locate one.

Thank you for the replies.
I am interested in a picture and price of the cam follower part you have if you wish to let me know.
However, I do want to post an ad in the engineads to see what original part may be available before I agree to a reproduction part.
I will let you know what I find as quickly as possible.
Thank you,
Scooter

Good afternoon,
I got the cam follower from Chuck and it looks great. I have a new problem. I started going through my parts to put it together and found the piston and rod that cam with the pile are not for a Monitor, they are for some type of horizontal engine. The person that sold me the engine basket case may have told me that, but it was over 20 years ago.
I will place a new want ad for them.
Thank you for the help.
Scooter
