Are all spark plug wires created equal for a Kohler K361?


I had the cowlings off of the K361 engine on my 1618 and misted some cleaner/degreaser to clean things near the spark plug (with the engine running) and the engine died.  I looked closer and the wire and boot are cracked and have seen better days.


I found a part number of 238057-S.  The aftermarket options (eg, Stens) are cheaper ($20) and are "create your own length".  A genuine Kohler wire is similar (create your own length) but $30-40, except for a couple "new old stock" listings on auction sites.


Is the genuine wire worth the cost, or stick to whatever the local parts store carries?

I sub the Wisconsin 14'' Wires for my customers , been doing it for years no issues, the kohler ones just got too out of hand cost wise

Mine run $14.99
