You have a good memory!

You are does have a pivot point!
Now that could explain the intermittent behavior I have noticed. i.e. once in a while in the past two days that elbow has popped out when I released the brake. But I could not replicate it....I am not experienced enough to have picked up on that.....I will check it out tomorrow...

But would the WD40 have freed it up? Or would it require brake grease?

I presume if either of those do not work then I would need a whole new brake cable...because it appears the brake cable seems to be attached pretty securely (perhaps soldered I cannot tell unless I take it apart)?

Thanks again! I was beginning to dread that if I could not fix it I would have to tow it to mechanic before winter rolls out around here in sunny Massachusetts!
