    Looks like I need all of it. All I have is the dash bracket and the outside cable sheathing, but I don't know about the end of it either...

    The inner and outer cable are made together as an assembly. The outer cable still may help in determining the length.
    My guess is the inner cable broke and was pulled out of the housing. The dash end had a ball on the cable end that fits the pull-lever (do you have that?). The transfer case end had a foot or more inner cable beyond the end of the housing, ending in a theaded stud about 2" long. These threaded into a shackle (adjustment) with a pin w/cotter that goes through the eye in the long brake lever, (that you probably don't have) . Does your T/C bearing retainer have a pinned stud on the bottom? Thats the pivot for the long brake lever. Those studs are often cracked out of the retainer casting.

    I might have a line on some here in San Diego.

    These would be the t-handle with bracket, with the word "Brake" on them, i think, like this (just an example pic):

    I think that is a 1966 Mustang parking brake...

    The Jeep has a "T" handle without any marking. I've got a handle for my other '66...

    Paint was an option... :lol:

    The handle in my '66 has been cut...

    I'm looking for the drum and parts too. Wheelie has a whole set up off his '66 Tux, but shipping.:( Just seeing if there something closer...

    The one shown with the clipped handle is correct for your vintage, but the handle is missing that piece. Like Ron said, the handle shouldn't pull all the way out, so something is missing or messed with. There is a later version of this too, from about '67-up that has a smaller handle with "brake" on it. The later handles break easier then the early "hooked" handle.
    The original cables were an all metal sheath that were way better than the plastic coated replacements. A big advantage is you can oil the metal cable, and it soaks through to the inner for good lube.
    The images didn' t initially show, so I thought you were talking about the pull handle. I now see your TC, and I think you have the wrong rear bearing retainer for where the output flange is. The correct retainer has a lower pivot pin for the long brake lever that is also missing. The casting that holds the pivot pin often is broken off, so the pin has no way to retain it.
    I may find the correct retainer to take a picture to send it to you? I'll look tomorrow.
