You can buy cable couplers to fix this. My only concern is that by the time you have bought the aluminum couplers and the tool to "squeeze" one into place, you will very likely have paid for a new cable a couple of times.

You may also check at your local hardware store to see if they have some very small U-bolt assemblies that are small enough to fit on this cable. See my attached photo to see how these will need to be arranged. I just don't know that you'll be able to find any of these bolt/saddle assemblies that small. I know that they're made, I just don't know that most hardware stores will carry them this small.

I show this tiller as being from about 1997 (first 6 of serial are MMDDYY). Back then very few models came with a grease fitting as they were sealed from the factory and did not require grease unless the transmission was opened up for service. The units that do have a grease fitting have that fitting on the right side to the side of the shifter. If it's there, it's right out in the open and cannot be missed. Again, I see notes from the manufacturer that your model number does not have a fitting and should not need grease unless there is a problem in the way of a blown seal or something of that nature. If that is the case the transmission has to be opened up and greased then sealed back up.

As long as there are no leaks you shouldn't have anything to worry about. I've seen many of these machines go for 20+ years and there never be an issue.
