Clutch cable headaches

So I finally got it together enough to fire up for the first time. As I was adjusting the clutch, it snaps on me. No big deal, borrow the cable of the project/parts bike. The adjuster snaps on that one.

I am in need of a usable clutch cable now so I can make sure she will live before taking her out for winter storage.

Yeah, I've noticed our clutch cable adjusters tend to seize and snap off. I had to replace my cable due to a cut/rust. I got a used replacement and it was seized up solid.

PB Blaster and a blow torch to heat the outer nut, 2 rounds. Loosened it right up, no problems.
