Default Evolution 46 carb problem

I have a trainer with a Evolution 46 engine. It has been sitting for @ three years. Someone at the club wants to buy it for a friend. Everything was ok except the carb air intake control will not turn at all. It is frozen in place. Is this trashed and needs to be replaced or is there some way to get it to loosen up with out major surgery. Thanks.

If it's just gummed up, squirt a little fuel on it...then work the carb. throttle arm by hand back and forth until it loosens up.
You might have to take the carb off and soak it for a while if it's really gooked up.

I would squirt it with some WD40 and let it sit overnight...

SOmeone suggested putting fuel in the carb and letting it act as a solvent. Worked great.
