Have you tried QRG (Queensberry Road Garage) or GW (Graham Walker Scimitar)?

I had a replacement for my 1976 SE6 from here https://speedycables.com/ You may have to send them what cable pieces you have left to get the correct fittings.

That narrows it down a bit :lol:
Which part of the cable has broken, is it the inner drive? or some other part.
It may an easy fix, or you will have to locate a replacement, I have a complete working cable in my used spares.
