Small radiator/PS & transmission cooler question

Good morning all. I hope this is in the correct location. I have the skoolie temporarily named '26 Blackbird' in the project section, a Bluebird All-American w/ Cat 3208 pusher and an Allison AT. I need help determining the correct dimensions and tubing size for a replacement radiator...the smaller one that is accessed through the rear driver's side gate. The bus is in Alaska and I'm in Tennessee for the winter and she's snowed in there; so the babysitter can't take the dimensions for me but I'd like to get the radiator and have it to bring back with me in the spring. There's a pinky-sized hole in the bottom tube so I'm not thinking about repairs, but I did find a site that sells replacements for about $300. Any help is appreciated; thank you. Jim

I would call a Allison dealer and ask them what size the lines are.

I would go look at mine, but it's under three feet of snow right now.
