    Not familiar with the FC part.

    But back in the dark ages it was not uncommon for motorcyclists to re-solder the end fittings of control cables. In a pinch I have repaired them by shortening the outer casing slightly, and reattaching the cable end.

    that might be the option...
    the last 1 - 1.5" broke off at the carb throttle arm bolt.
