I've taken the cables off of wheelers before and forced isopropyl alcohol in them with air. It will displace the water. Then spray in a silicon type spray to lube it.

My riding lawn mower/ snowblower would do this also, heated it up with hair dryer, till it would move, then doused it with some aero-kroil, and not a single problem the rest of the winter, aside from the starter freezing up.

I had a similar problem with my brother in laws joyner buggy. I solved it by putting it in the heated garage overnight and then used compressed air to blow water out of the line. I didn't remove the cable from the sleeve, but did have to remove from the carb and pedal Once I got all the water I could get out, I sprayed cable lube, (wd 40 would work too) into one end and then used the air compressor to blow it through the line. Repeated this several times until I felt the line was well lubed. That was last year winter, no problems this year. Good luck.

If you can't find it let me know there is a store in town that sells it. I can ship you some. Aerokroil is about the best thing I've used.

Wyo had a post that showed the torque factors it took to loosen bolts after using a variety of these products including this one. The best results were obtained using a 50/50 mix of ATF and acetone
