Re: Gear and Throttle sticking
Old rusty parts clean up well, soaking in 50/50 solution of vinegar and water. Be careful, because this does eat away at the metal, so not a great idea for things with precise tolerances. Although, rust swells, which could be causing the binding, so taking it back may be exactly what you need. Maybe some stainless steel wool to clean it up after, good fresh water rinse and dry, then something like a light coat of Super Lube on mating surfaces.
