my 1983 w460 is in the process of getting a om606 installed and previously had the m110.  My current radiator is falling apart and i cannot get a re core locally. Should i buy the same behr w460 radiator i have for $600 usd? or should i buy a nissens aftermarket or W463 radiator from MB locally for between $325 and $500 usd? Is the w463 radiator a direct replacement or does it use different mounting locations? My g is LHD.

Hello Nick

As Michigan is a cooler part of the US you would be ok with the std radiator, I'd keep looking to get a four row core, use this with the original oil cooler,

Put a new viscous coupling and make a radiator cowl to fit the W210 fan. An Iveco daily intercooler just below the horns and your good to go.

You will have to keep an eye on temps if your pulling a trailer up a long hill but normal stuff your good.
