Question about Garden
What is the part on the engine where this cable attaches? I spayed WD40 but this part will not move, used last week, no problem moved some today but now stuck
If the cable is not moving then it may be broken. If the lever that releases the blade brake won't move then the brake mechanism is seized and you will have to open it up and free up that mechanism. Simply spraying WD40 won't usually fix that. WD40 isn't the best solvent in this case since WD stands for Water Displacement, it was designed to keep things dry. Something like PB Blaster or Kroil is best.

Testimonial: "Here's an update ok I went outside, disassembled to where I could access this brake lever, and am now very confused. It PUSHES FORWARD, IT DOES NOT PULL BACKWARDS as the cable would move the lever. here is the link to the video I made so yo could see it. It moves one-handed. https://youtu.be/1PjJ3JY5NYY. In the video you can see me moving the cable inside the sheath quite easily. Where the cable attaches to the lever, you push it forwards, the brake comes off the flywheel?, not sure if that is what that part is called, but that opens the switch at the other end."
