AC 416H choke cable frozen

My AC416 has been sitting since last fall in the garage and the choke cable won’t pull out. I’ve never had this problem before. Any tips on how to free it up?

If it were me, I would remove the cable entirely and work on it. I would start coaxing a thin lubricant down each end and try to work it free. If that doesn't work, soak it in a bath of something like gas. (I'm sure others have better suggestions) I'd bet if it worked last fall it won't be that stubborn. Good luck, Dave

Thanks Dave.  With a little extra effort and persistence I got it working.  I’ll take it as a lesson learned for next fall to make sure to lubricate the cable and linkage.
