Finding Parts for a Briggs & Stratton engine on a Generac Generator

I don't give up on fixing much; but I'm about to give up on finding parts for the engine on this small Generac S2400 Generator.

The engine that powers it (powered it) doesn't have the standard B&S Model, Type, and Code Number and seems to defy the standard B&S Number system.

This Generac S2400 unit has a plate on the 5 HP Horizontal Shaft B&S engine saying:

Model: 9415-1
Series:: S-2452
Serial: 1157013
Volts: 120
Amps: 20
Watts: 2400

Can anyone de-code this to locate an engine Schematic and Parts Number identifier for this B&S Engine ?

I originally just wanted to replace the rusted steel gas tank; but now I wonder if I should even begin looking for what I thought might be standard B&S Parts.

The actual model number of the engine should be on the shroud. On older engines it was often stamped in the metal by itself, sometimes near the plug wire.

That was the 1st place I looked, and expected to find it.

Looking closely at the side of the shroud, I think there;'s a Generac Decal positioned right on top of the embossed B&S Model, Type and Code. I'll have to scrape it off.

You might be able to put a piece of paper over it and shade it with the wide side of a pencil lead.... might make an impression of the number that you could read without removing the decal.
