You'll have to scrape the crud off but there's probably a little allen screw that holds inner cable into lower part.

Thanks Mark, ya I know it's dirty. I'm at a slight disadvantage I don't have my usual amenities where I'm currently keeping this bike

See arrow.  Should be a small allen screw that holds in a bare cable.  When I was a kid mine was a PITA...  once I removed it cable got frayed and it was almost impossible to reinstall.

Your picture.  It looks like an extended tip wide gap hot heat range plug from a Nissan or something from what I can see of the number.
