    What is the diameter of the cable, and the ball end? Also total length from ball end to the end of the threaded stud that the clevis threads onto? I may have a couple of these around, or could fabricate one.

    Looks to me that you can wrap the wires together and silver solder that section. Should be strong enough. But if course that is UNLESS you can't find a new cable.

    Thanks Guys, I end up soldered the wire so it wouldn't fray then cut the bad part off, drilled out the ball then installed the ball over the cable and soldered then ends so the ball wouldn't move.... so far so good.
