In our previous work (Gonzalez, 2016, Cat. J/MNRAS/459/1060), we limited the search area around M67 to that of a recent ground-based study. In the present work, we expand the search area and apply a more rigorous period-finding algorithm to determine the rotation periods of 98 main-sequence cluster members from the same data. In addition, we derive periods of 40 stars from the K2SC detrended light curves. We determine the mean period of single sun-like main-sequence cluster members to be 29.6±0.6d. Assuming the periods correspond to stellar rotation, the corresponding mean gyrochronological (gyro-) age is 5.4±0.2Gyr. Description: Using Kepler/K2-Campaign-5 light curves, we have per- formed an improved period analysis of M 67 member stars compared to our earlier similar study (Paper I, Gonzalez, 2016, Cat. J/MNRAS/459/1060). We found that some of the period estimates in Paper I were not true rotation periods. Our new analysis includes stars observed by Kepler over a wider area than we explored in Paper I, but, because of our more restrictive criteria in the present work, actually yields fewer rotation period determinations from the same data. In addition, we derived periods from a second K2 database containing detrended light curves. The new rotation periods are in excellent agreement with those of B16, where our samples overlap.
