    You should have two rods going from your T-Bar. One on each side. At the bottom of those rods is a threaded end that is attached with a pin. Remove the pin and rotate the end to make the distance longer betweed the top of the rod to the adjustable end. Put the pin back on and repeat on both sides. Once adjusted you should have about an inch or so between the frame and the t-bar. Now you will need to adjust parking brake. Each side has another rod at the bottom that also has a pin. At the top of that rod is a wingnut. You will need to tighten this one ( I believe). Repeat on other side.
