I'm about to purchase a new flat tube radiator and want to know by consensus, which manufacturer has the best product.

Regards,

Steve Boothroyd

Berg's

Heavy duty quality, if your doing a show car, it's missing some details of Ford originality, but.....

You didn't say what year, but I assume this is for your 1922. In that case I agree, Berg's. Not exactly original in the details? Nobody makes one that is.

For a brass era car, I prefer a recore.

I bought a flat tube radiator from Berg's. It was the best money that I have spent on the car so far.

Betsy came to me with a new Berg's radiator and no water pump. She runs cool even in the mid-summer. :-)

Just got back from a run around town at 93F and my Berg's radiator never got out of the normal range. Good luck finding one better. Jim

Like Jim Riedy I went 12 miles north to the post office, bank, got fuel, down to the city dock (another car show-this time an '80 Lincoln & 65 Mustang were there) then back home. 93 degrees also obviously. My '12 has a Brasswirks flat tube & the moto meter stayed at half height. Works for me.

I have a Berg radiator in my 1929 model A and am very impressed on the quality and how well it cools. It was all new when I bought it 3 yrs. ago and it fit in the original shell with NO modifications/changes.
