Default Re: Spark Advance and Throttle Levers very tight.

Actually the rods under the hood move freely when disconnected. The levers are very tight/stiff. I've lubed them at the steering column many times. They do move now but it almost takes both hands to move them. If I need to remove them, how do they come out?
It looks like I would unscrew the bottom spring area and slide them out the top once the steering wheel is removed.
