Exclamation Rusty M41 clutch fork - how do I get this off?

Working on my crusty 144 again. The more I look at the underside of it, the more I think I should just crush it. It's mostly the floors, but definitely some welding will be required in the future.

Anyway, I'm trying to disconnect the clutch linkage so I can pull the bellhousing off the transmission (with the engine).



But... it won't move. I suspect that the ball-end of the cable is rusted to the fork.

Sorry for the blurry pic - I couldn't see this with my own eyes, I was reaching around the top with the camera.



I can't get it to move more than a few millimeters before it gets stuck. I tried a hammer.

Any suggestions?
