Just a guess but I would say the top one is an early version.

Guessing, I think the lower one is for use with the 4-speed transmission.

I have a AA 4 Speed in my '28 Roadster Pick up.
I didn't know they made a special brake shaft just for the 4 speeds.
I try to get a photo of mine tomorrow when it's daylight and post it here.

Thanks for the help.

The bottom one looks like the one that was used on left hand emergency brake cars when converting to solid brake cross shaft, but with one of the arms removed. See Bobs entry on the other thread.
