I don’t really remember where the cable broke. The cable was still in the passage tube in the wing and attached to the control bracket in the cowling area. I think it broke free of the rudder at the bracket connection and got pulled into the passage tube when I was making my landing approach. I easily extracted the cable from the wing, but I had a lot of trouble inserting the replacement cable. I think the nylon tube was scarred by the event. I had to buy a 20 ft. length of 10 gauge copper wire to use to clean out the tube in order to pass the replacement cable.
Don’t want to do this again.

when you lost your rudder, where did the rudder cable break? Presumably 3/32" cable? I ask because I heard a story about the rudder cable causing further injury to the pilot's leg in a crash as it was pulled through the cabin when the wings sheared off.
