Personally, I would run three new wires in the conduit just to be
sure you don't have more problems in the future.
Whatever damaged the white wire may have damaged the other two, and
they haven't failed yet. It is a good repair, and is small price to pay
to not have to worry about future failures.
Be sure to disconnect the old wires at both ends, and to put a tag on
them that says" DEFECTIVE, DO NOT USE", in case someone else works on it
in the future.
