Those cable require regular maintenance. If you don't they will tend to bind. That is true of all cables, not just Van's.
Personally I spray them with Kroil at each annual, and sometime more often. Spraying the outside of the cable housing is sufficient and allow it to creep inside. It is easy to see when it has absorbed inside. There are certain sections of my cables that I can't spray to to limited access, but they are mostly straight sections and thus, less likely to bind.

Has anyone had problems with the Vans supplied throttle/mixture cables for
Both bound up after 8 years, I replaced them and now have an issue with
mixture cables' throw reduced to under 2 inches resulting in inability to
shut a/c down with mixture.
