Parking brake cable parts for light truck rear end?

question has been asked numerous times in online columns but i need to know what the application is for a gm axle w/ a casting #3896839 (pass. side) and gm 79 (driver side) both- front part of axle assy. had the cover off, did the math-it's a 3.07 ratio but what's the application besides 1964-1982 light truck 1/2 t or 3/4 t. the issue is the presence of this axle as a used replacement in a 55 chevy l.b. 2nd series p/u. I would like to replace the emergency brake cabling system. original has been disconnected and defeated due to the axle changeout and I doubt that a 55 oem or repro replacement is going to function any better. do I just order a 1979 chev light truck long bed emer. brake cabling system for instance or is this going to have to be specially made?

I would use the cables what is factory for the rear end that you have and adapt the cables to the brake lever system that you have in the cab..

ht d rd jack

makes absolute sense assuming the axle is a 79 and the casting # refers to a light truck axle-that seems to be the crux of the id issue-I have not been able to substantiate either piece of data as applying -only hinting. if the pumpkin cover is the clue then I'd call it a gm light truck 12 bolt and move on-thanks for the feedback
