I went with the metal Nissen rad. The lower mount nuts have a really
tight thread,( I let Scott know about this problem and he said he would
check out the threads before shipping any more Nissens) another lister
broke them loose on two radiators. I was patient when installing and
found them tight but did not break a mount nut loose. Paint quality is
poor, I have the paint on the top flaking off.
