    Posted: 10 Dec. 2006 at 7:45am
I have two different styles of handle and cable. I only know for sure which one went on Jeep #34692.
 
The one with the sleave and longer handle came off Jeep #34692
 
                                        From the '49 parts list
HANDLE and RATCHET TUBE,  emergency brake, assembly (Up to Ser. No. 183498)  Part No. A-15150
HANDEL and RACHET TUBE,  emergency brake assembly (after Ser. No. 183498)  Part No.  646141
 
HANDLE, operating (Black) (up to Ser. No 44304)  Part No. 639244
HANDLE, operating (Chrome) (After Ser. No. 44304)  Part No. 643123
 
CABLE and CONDUIT, ratchet tube assembly (Up to Ser. No. 183498) Part No. 640353
CABLE and CONDUIT, ratchet tube, assembly (After Ser. No. 183498) Part No. 646142
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The cable length for the sleeved style (from Jeep #34692) is 38 1/2" from the end of the ball to the inside of the nut on the turnbuckel yolk.
 
The length of the cable with the ball end is 42" from the center line of the ball to the inside of the nut on the turnbuckel yolk.

Gary: the longer handle with the pin is the same as on Mine #48777. The shorter one with the ball is the same as my M38 one.  Also the cable goes past the passenger side of the transmission toward the brake lever(on the transfercase), and on th M38 it goes past the drivers side with a shorter brake lever. I'll have to take some picture's to confirm this.

Regarding "black" vs "chrome" handles

Part no. 639244 - HANDLE, operating (Black) (up to SN 44304)

Photos from connomans #10371 "barn find".  Most of the black paint is worn off, but still obvious when viewed from the right angle:

    

    

And a clip from Tims recent 3-Stooges movie:

    

Part no. 643123 - HANDLE, operating (Chrome) (After Ser. No. 44304)

"Chrome" (maybe nickel plate) is mostly intact:

Looks like I used Cat's photobucket account Cry I'll repost pics of the cables here.
 

 
 
Here is a little different cable that came off a VEC  16xxx. notice how much more heavy duty this cable is, it's almost 50% bigger!  Anyone ever seen one like this?

Tony my friend you need to post some pics! What do you make of this cable? did you find it on an VEC?  Do you think this was a military? or just a heavy duty replacement?

The smaller ones I have found were located on the VEC and the larger ones on the later 47 48
I also notice a difference in the holding bracket itself...
 
And if I had any patients anymore I would learn to post pics..... naaaaaLOL
