In this forum I remember someone showing the differences in the fender from a 400 to I beleive a 444 and the 400 had an extra peice spotwelded on the underneath of the fender along the sides I think this would stiffen fender I wish I would have did this to mine before welding it on but I think it will still work ok

Well just when you think you are done!The one thing driving me nuts was I could not find the rubber cover for the kill button on the motor of my Hus Ski 444.My buddy Andre found this we put it on folded inside out and a dab of clear silicone and BAM !!!!That was i fit great looks original.I will take a pic of it on this week end as it will be at a local show.But this is the part number and the part is a Briggs and Stratton primer bulb.Briggs #494408 ESF # 137-061
