Kevin, the cable you show on the right, although an improvement, especially if it fits the frame bracket, it still not the correct cable.

The correct cable has a turned end, with two cylindrical radiused grooves. One for the cable boot and the other for the bracket bolt that locates the cable correctly in the clamp. This interfering bolt also stops the cable from moving in the clamp if the bolt happens to loosen. A second fail safe for your emergency brakes.

I bought mine from LMC Truck, item # 34-3806. Just checked, and still in stock and priced at $19.95 each..

I do recall the original cables on my truck (completely frozen and long gone) had at least one groove on a solid metal thimble. As far as the bolt loosening, that's not likely, but being more positive in positioning and securing is a good thing. I may return the ones I got from The Filling Station and get those from LMC. Quite a price difference as well.

Thanks

So I currently have 3 styles of parking brake cables: the AC Delco pair from RockAuto that are vinyl covered and don't fit the frame bracket; Original style steel spiral wrapped cables that are REAL CLOSE to original, from The Filling Station, but don't have the notches for the bolt thru the frame bracket; and a pair from LMC Truck that are a combination, vinyl covered, but with a proper sized spool with notches where the frame bracket goes thru. The latter ones are the ones I'll be using. Function trumps appearance.
