Thanks,
Jerry

It would just be the #3 for $27.74. Probably plus shipping. Those dogs are usually a little loose, though to be able to work. They often have a little spring to return them out of the drive gearing. When you pull the starting rope they fly out with centrifugal force and engage. There can be different designs, I'm sure.
