Choke cable problems

I have a Columbia 8.7 and having fits replacing the choke cable. The problem is the choke will pull out but not push in. It is a side pull in the cockpit. I am so frustrated that I am thinking to drill a hole in the cockpit and make it a straight pull. Any suggestions, hints or sympathy would be appreciated.

Re: Choke cable problems

Sympathy is somewhere between shxx and syphlis in the dictionary but a bell crank can change a cable pull by maybe 90 degrees.
