I have an 83 MC9 ( ex NJT ) with a 6V92TA and Allison HT740.

My left side ( drivers ) radiator just went to leaking apparently due to previous salt damage
on the lower section.

I solved the airflow problems earlier where the air-seals around the radiators was missing or damaged.
I now run much cooler at 185 degrees rather than the 195+ that I was running.

Now the question is, Will a Radiator from an MC8 that had an 8V71 fit in the MC9 and work OK?

My HT740 does not use an oil to water cooler so there's no heat load from that.

My book doesn't show a different part number for the 8V71 and 6V92 radiators, Only a different one for the 8V92 which
I don't have.

I may be able to scrounge a radiator from an MC8 if it will work. I am floundering around with no money right now
and this makes life just tougher by needing stuff to keep the bus running or runable.

Any ideas?

Robbing Banks is NOT an option !!!

Install a big radiator on the left side, (drivers side) that will cure your cooling problems for good
