Aaaand we have lift-off... IT'S ALIIIIIIVE! The cable was the issue with my tech 2, I used the pin-out below (Thanks Saabaus for the hints)

Nice work.

lucky call on which end to replace it could have been the other end was wrong. I couldn’t imagine trying to get one of those round 19 pin connectors

Well I have around 15 pcs of DB26 male pins left ( yeah I purchased them in bulk ) so I would have started with the DLC side regardless, I guess you could say that luck was a bit on my side. I would have hated to tear apart the Candi side connector :)

Honestly though, after tearing the DLC side apart I can see why the cable failed, the soldering and quality of the pins on the connector, were poor to begin with... Not to mention the wires themselves...
