Clutch cable R & R

The clutch cable is binding on my 86' CR80.

When I pull the hand lever and let go, it doesn't retract. I can use a wrench on the crankcase clutch level to pull that cable back down "to rest." I can push it forward into that cable slack too.

The cable basically isn't sliding free. I can't find anything pinching it anywhere but I would like to detach it from the bike first to see what's up before I order a new one.

The perch side was easy, but I don't now how to get it off the engine side.

Oops never mind, once I got pressure off it I found the slot for the cable end to slide through.
