my question is when looking for a coil, I find new, used, and after market. Is it worth the money for the after market coil? They are about fifty to 100.00 dollars less than one from kohler or other sites.

In my opinion electrical parts like coils should never be bought used, too many variables of previous owner gaffes and you really dont know what your buying.


I can get them new but looking on ebay there are some NOS deals I cant beat!



Aftermarkets can be good if you get them from a reputable seller that knows what they are selling and they are not made in china.


Maybe one of our sponsors has a few NOS ones as well they can give you a deal on.

Unless you find NOS Kohler ones their coils are now made overseas IMO most of the parts that can be interchanged you might as well (less money) Kohler has them made for them anyways. I agree with the Doc on used one ,engine heat takes its toll ! Kirk engines out of WI has them less money than Kohler & I believe they are made here (They're yellow thou) Also there is a Harley coil that fits as well probably Chinese. Ditto on site sponsors, if no luck there try Pats small engines, Tulsa engine warehouse , or OPE engines , I use them all , they carry same stuff sometimes one beats other on price is all

I can buy aftermarket.  I can buy Kohler OEM as a dealer.


But the best one I have used is what Jerome posted.  :thumbs:

I too have used that Harley coil. It works just fine and if you look at it closely, it is physically the twin of the Kohler coil (as long as you only buy a black one).
