Just installed a new Berg's radiator in my 1929 Model A roadster P/U and could not be happier with the high quality of their radiator. The mounting brackets and filler neck lined up perfectly with the original shell. No fit problems.....everything lined up great.
I am very impressed with the all new Bergs radiator for my 29 Model A roadster P/U. A good friend purchased it at the Hershey Swap meet and transported it back for me. Could not ask for anything more!
That has been my experience as well.
I bought a brass rad from Berg's three years ago for our 14 Roadster. Fit perfectly no problems excellent
Berg's is making brass radiators?
I bought one from him at the Chickasha swap meet last March for my '28 roadster. It fit pefectly and sure solved it's overheating problem. Well worth the price to me.
Bob, no. He quit doing brass. Tried it for awhile, but dropped it.
Have to Berg's radiators and will be ordering my third shortly. Beautifully made, perfect fit and Gery is a great guy. When I ordered my last one, he mentioned that he was going on vacation in New England soon. He offered to load a radiator up in his car and meet me somewhere to save me the shipping costs. One Saturday evening about a month ago, he called me at home, told me where he was (less than an hour from my house) and I picked the radiator up. I WILL ALWAYS BUY FROM BERG'S.
Damn autocorrect. Should have read "I have two Berg's radiators..."
I always heard the Berg's are top quality but, aren't they incorrect looking compared to the Brassworks rads?
Based only on pictures, not having examined the actual radiators, I would say Berg's and Brassorks' brass era radiators were both incorrect compared to the original. I'm not saying either one was bad, just not made the same as Ford's. That's the main reason I kept my original and had it recored. The bonus was saving a few Benjamins. For a new brass radiator, Brassworks is now the only game in town. For black era, I go with Berg's. While it's not an exact replica, it works well and is out of sight where slight variations from the original aren't seen.

Actually, I just looked at the black car rads on the Brassworks site and the inlet side looks incorrect as well. It's not a big deal I guess. I think I will get the Berg's rad as it has such a heavy duty appearance and good reputation..
