how do you guys do it?
There is a notch where the cable attaches to the handle. Spray in there. Done. (Use Fluid Film).
how about the throttle cable
I have never done that one. Good question.
Hose or power wash machine, Spray a lubricant Wd_40 or similiar everywhere corrosion will be an issue. Once a month at least depending on use. Throttle cable, hopper cables, metal nuts and bolts, inside wheel hubs etc...
it is still stuck. i just got a sample of that fluid film in , going to give that a try..
Spray WD-40 on both ends of the cable wherever it is exposed--and also on the handle pivots and the mechanism on the carbuertor that it must actuate.
If all else fails disconnect it at the end. Work it back and forth with vise locks adding lube wherever possible. If necessary, pull the cable out of its houseing tube --lube it up good-- squirt lube down the tube, and slide the wire back in.
Better yet, just stop by your lawn mower shop and buy a new one--universal type is inexpensive.
Spray Fluid Film for the best protection and lubrication. I guarantee it will last longer than the other products. If you haven't tried it before and live within the Continental United States, just PM me, give me your shipping address, and I'll get a can right out to you.
