Difference between Pentax '67ii' folding focus hood and '67' folding focus hood?

I see that the first early one for Pentax '6x7' folding focus hood says 'ASAHI' on the front top and 'Pentax' on bottom,

but is there any difference between Pentax '67ii' folding focus hood and '67' folding focus hood?
Or are there only two kinds? One with ASAHI on top and one without?
And Pentax 67ii one is exactly same as 67 one?

There are three versions: 6x7, 67 and 67II.

The 6x7 has "ASAHI PENTAX"
The 67 has "PENTAX"
The 67II has "PENTAX" in a different font size.

All three are the same design wise except for the name.

I have no experience with the 67II. But when Pentax introduced the 67, they also introduced things such as lenses and this WLF accessory with the new branding. Here is both a 6x7 and 67 generation fitted with a waist level finder. I know the 67II you can swap out the focus screen on the fly and I suspect that area of the camera is different.

I don't have a photo for you but I recently bought the 67ii and I tried my old Asahi Pentax WLF on it. It fits perfectly and works just fine. That's not saying it is identical in every way to the newer version. I don't know that because I don't have the newer version WLF, but I do know that the old one fits the 67ii.
