Boom-- internal outhaul jammed

Upon inspecting the boom of the 1975 Ericson 27 I purchased late last fall, it seems as if the internal mainsail outhaul is jammed on the boom.

The play line comes out of the spar about 2' in front of the gooseneck, and has a jam cleat just fore of where it comes out (on the port side of the boom).

I made certain the line was not cleated, and went to pull the outhaul at the aft end of the boom thinking that if I didn't have the other end cleated, the line should pull out easily. Not a chance. It just won't budge.

Does anyone know how the line runs, inside the mast, to give me a clue as to how I might begin to remedy this?
