The U-Joint will be behind the park/emergency brake so yes...should you lose the connection to the rear axle...no more brake. There are also brakes that mount on the rear axle for just that reason.

The MH Iím pulling parts from has that type E brake. I lost the wheel bearing on the driver rear and ended up having to hold the brake pedal until my wife got out and found a rock to put in front of the tire. Terrible system.

That transmission will not have overdrive and has a PTO, looks like a version of the MT643

Looks like the shifter and mounting plate are just sitting on top of the tranny for the photo op. looks like the cable shift arm on the lower left of the tranny case.

That's a run-away-from kind of thing. It looks mt643-ish, but who knows.
