Any used radiator will be 40 years old so probably will leak soon too... Probably would want to get it rebuilt before dropping in, if you find one. So a used rad might not really solve your problem, at least not more than temporarily, still would need to find a rebuilder.

New rads for 240 diesels have been NLA for some time now unfortunately.

There is nobody in your area that can rebuild an all-metal radiator? Try asking some hot rod shops or heavy equipment/tractor places for a referral? Today in 2021 I believe it is still a common need to have a radiator re-cored for applications that don't have easily obtainable new replacements but that people are still dependent on. I live in a tiny town of 8,000 population and even here there is a busy radiator rebuild shop.
