W116 radiator

Hi folks,

The bottom tank on my (fairly recently rebuilt radiator) has sprung a leak at the hose connection. I haven't looked at it yet, but the mechanic at the shop told me they're plastic and not repairable at that location. A new radiator is available but costs ~$1300. I have a few questions....

1. is it in fact not repairable? JB weld? glue? other ideas?
2. This is a Euro-spec 79 280SE, will an American spec radiator fit with the oil cooler? Will a 450SEL radiator fit?
3. Anyone have a used radiator?
