The whole crimp? That's one whole peice that's a crimp on the cable. How is it missing? What is currently. Holding your wire? You can get just a regular O ring crimp...

That look ugly.

Get some nice automotive audio grade cable (6 or 4 awg) and replace that. Get some high grade copper o-ring crimps and crimp and solder them and put heat shrink sleeving over that mess. (I always put some black RTV before I heat shrink over external wires to "potting" them).

Also get some high grade copper post to put on the battery.
