I agree with planetman. It sounds like the easiest option. I've had an easier time pulling the motor out of my 122s by leaving the gearbox in. Then when re-installing the motor I removed the gearbox and attached it to the motor from underneath. I had an easier time getting the input shaft lined up that way.

Also you will have some more room to attack the stuck cable with the motor out of the way. Have you tried disconnecting it at the pedal end to get some more play to work with? That is if you can't get enough play by backing off the adjustment.
