Time for a new radiator for my '27 coupe. Looking at the flat tube ones in Mac's. Not a car to be judged so flat tubes are fine. I see they have two flat tube radiators with a price spread. Not sure of the difference so guess it best to call them? I am thinking the lower dollar one will be fine. My neighbor has one and it works just fine. My original cools fine but I just can not keep the leaks stopped and am throwing in the towel before I have a real issue. Ken

Not to bad-mouth Mac's, but I would go with Berg's. Their website sucks, but their radiators have a great reputation.

I put one in my '27 from Bergs a couple of years ago and love it! Fit perfectly and cools like an ice box! I too went for the flat tube as I care less about judging than 95 degree temperatures in Florida!

Not finding anyone that wanted to fix my radiators around here I have learned to buy up old lead acid core solder and I fix my own best I can.
Flat tube works well.Someone in florida a good many years ago,helped me out with a used flat tube for my TT and it has worked so well.Tickled pink with it.

Ken...I got a flat tube two years ago for my Model A from Snyders, I got the more expensive one. It was perfect, and works perfectly. It's actually from Brassworks. The cheaper ones I understand are like a "brand X" and who knows how well they'll fit, or even work.

Also, John Regan from Fun Projects handles Brassworks, in fact he's working on getting me a '25 tall for my TT firetruck. He sharpens the pencil pretty good. Just an alternative thought.
