    The engine family code isn't really useful, model is though.
    We need fuel, compression, spark and proper timing to run.
    So are you getting gas to the cylinder?

    Yes getting proper gas go the cylinder. This was the main problem. Customer said they were driving it and it stopped running. Just cut off. They ran it out of oil.. Filled it with oil and still won't start.

    If your certain there is fuel to cylinder and spark is good. Then I would check compression using a leak down tester or compression tester.

    Not sure what small engine shops are in your area but take air filter to one of them so you get correct air filter.
    You could also call Jack's at 1-877-737-2787.
