Whatever you use, follow it with an oil chaser.

Just go to a bike shop and buy a new cable. Seriously, it's not worth fighting with it. The better ones are now made of stainless and still aren't any more expensive than a can of penetrating oil. Make sure you get some ferrules and also when you cut the housing, make sure you dress the housing end flat with either a file or a bench grinder.
good luck
