my outter actually broke over the rocker cover (i'd urs did too because they wouldn't melt seeing as they're laced with wire) but i did a temporarily permanent fix on mine: get a piece of copper tube and cut it length-wise on one side, then put it over the cable where the break is and crush in on there to hold the two bits of outter together, worked for me.

EF/EL wont fit an EB.
Honestly mate, save the bucks if you have to and buy new, second hand will already be half stuffed.
Put up with the half the throttle till you can get one, try a couple of other parts places as Repco are a rip off on retail.
If you're good on the phone, call up and say you're from ummm Triple 8 Automotive (or anything that comes to mind) and you want a price on one, quite often they'll give you trade straight up.
