Default CL Weber OTS 22.5 help....

Hello Brethren,
Just bought a Weber 22.5 OTS DD kettle. The ash arms seem to be seized up. Clearly the previous owner was not a Weber fan. Is there a non petroleum based way to free this up without breaking it? Want to give it to my gasser bro to start his conversion.
Thanks!

I would think if you just used cooking oil on it it would probably loosen it up.
