It appears that the possibly missing part is mirrored on the deck. In the linked diagram, it shows 65 and 66, spring and hook as the match for the section near the 33 part you've referenced. Your photo shows an irregularity in that there is a cotter pin "tail" extending through the hole. Such a position is not something one would install in this manner, but ...

It's clear to me that you have identified the main cause of this: Fuel is NOT getting into the engine. You noted that there doesn't appear to be any fuel in the fuel filter, so the next step is to determine WHY that is the case. Is there a fuel shut-off valve? Is there a fuel screen that is blocked? Is the fuel line pinched or clogged? What about the ...
