I got a new Champion Cooling 2 row (1 inch tube size) radiator for my 64 C10. The old radiator was about 1 1/2 inches thicker than the new one. The old radiator was only held in by a top saddle mount that went around the middle of the top of the radiator. With the new radiator being thinner there are gaps on the bottom support rail and the top saddle bracket. Can I just fill in the gaps with some rubber tubing, weatherstripping, or pads to make sure the radiator is supported and will not move?

Yea, that's what I would do. Making sure that it is supported/cushioned well. I used straight heater hose to fill the gaps between the radiator and side sheet metal. I must have the 3 row, because mine wasn't thinner than the original, but ever so slightly larger and still fit tight into my bottom support rail and top saddle mount.
