you cannot take the old cable out of the carb cap. you have to buy a cable that is already installed onto the cap. at least, thats how it is for my 80 which is the same year as your 100.

pull the rubber boot back with some needle nose pliers , then push the cable into the carb cap , this should make it come loose
