You might check the "lay" of the inner cable. Right or left hand.

I am very curious on where this came from.
Is this a Standardized Cable system? is it an international Harvester system?
When I was looking for a new cable a year ago, nobody I talked to had ever seen a tab on the end.

I know very little of what you are asking except for....

It is not just tach cables that have a "tab" on them. Old equipment of many different makes has speedo and tach cables with this tab on one end or both that you referred to.
My 51 GMC truck speedo cable had the tab rather than a squared off core.

Good luck on your projects!

Likely it is a after market item supplied from one of the generic parts houses. I had one like it that came from a local implement dealer, Ag CO, if I recall.

There are a variety of cable and housing ends used.
