I contacted the guy on eBay and he has more of the double ended 5/8" cable clamps. All you have to do is contact him through eBay.

Did all winch equipped halftracks use 5/8" cable?

Yes, all original halftracks that had winches came with 5/8" cable from the factory. But I know quite of few halftrack owners use 1/2" cable instead. I will be putting the correct 5/8" on mine when the time comes.
