Changing out the cable is not hard, especially if you are going all new. When you pull the choke plungers out of the carb, there is a ball on the end of the cable that fits in a socket and is held in the socket by spring pressure. It is a good idea to do any changing over the bench, so when you drop the spring or the plunger, you don't have to hunt for about a week under the dang engine to find it. (speaking from experience here... )
After you get the plungers changed to the new cable, and get it re-installed, you will need to adjust the cable so that the plunger bottoms on both carbs. You do that by checking the freeplay at the choke lever. You should have about 1/8 of an inch "slop" in the lever. Measure from the lever to the nut holding it. With a little freeplay, you are ensuring that the plungers are bottoming and the choke (enrichment circuit) will be operating correctly.

Am I correct in reading your response that I can unscrew the nuts that hole the cable assembly to the carbs and then remove the unit as a whole to my bench inside where it is warm and then do the cable exchange?
Many thanks for the info. The change was easy and I gave everything a shot of carb cleaner while I was at it. Only thing though was that I purchased a whole cable assmbly as thetoggle leaver had broken off just to find out when I took the original off thta the toggle end is a separate assembly and can be purchased by itself. Well live and learn - experience is great. Now I will know for the next time.
Yup, live and learn. I've done the exact same thing.
