This is a half-ton 'short box' with the 8-stud 'floater' axles and 12 inch drums. We need a good right/rear cable with the outer casing part between 70 and 72 inches long. Not sure how much the inner cable sticks out each end but possibly 8 to 10 inches? Also not sure of type of cable 'end pieces' but could be one round end and one cylindrical. Orig. cable is missing so going with some measurements from newer truck. Does anyone know of a source for a new cable? Or, a really good used one? Please and thank-you.

I think your going to require the cable to fit the 3/4 ton brakes on the diff then make the rest work. If you google the year truck the diff came from, there may be different lengths based on wheel base. This is where I would start.
