I noticed that you have a Columbus 320RS. Many of them have a problem with the black tank valve cable being too long and not properly secured, this causes the cable to flex excessively when operating the valve and binds. Most have had success in securing the cable to the frame or brackets in the basement using nylon tie straps along the length of the cable. Some have shortened the cable, too. Lubing the cable is still a good idea, though.

Try some lube. Mine were very hard to operate just sprayed with WD-40 and they loosened up and seem to operate smoothly now.
