Do you have a part number for what you need to install?
I'm guessing what is broke is an end on the sleeve around the cable?

I think he's refering to the lead bead on the end of the cable.
The only problem with simply casting a new bead is that the cable would be shortened by the amount that broke off before the bead. Casting new lead is easy but with the shortened cable, he runs the risk of not being able to lower his idle or of going WOT if it's the return cable that broke. If he is replacing the entire cable length and casting beads at both ends, that would work.

Amin, I don't think you would need a welder per se, just a torch to melt the lead to cast into the new bead(s) on the cable end(s).

If that is the case, I would get a new cable.
I've tried repairing the end bead part and they never seem to hold as good as the original.

I agree, and the OEM cable will fit with no problems and probably last much longer.
