There is no name on the engine?

That's a Briggs number. It's a straight key, and you can not use a regular piece of keystock bought from the hardware store. You need to buy the alloy key made specifically for briggs engines or you could have a flywheel that explodes while rotating over 3 thousand rounds per minute.
