That is exactly the cable I'm looking for.
If you find two let me know / If I find two I'll let you know.

As a hack, I'm considering this if there's no way out.
Take the bulkhead connector (to the internal ribbon
cable) from a spare machine with a matching connector
(either format, just so the two match) and transplant it into
the older/newer machine. Now a matching ended cable
could be used... it is hoped.

I just have the matching ended ones, one of each, no
spares. BTW make sure you don't lose your terminators.
