    I recently bought a 2000 36" Toro with the T-bar controls and I am not sure if they are adjusted properly. Do you hold the t-bat tight against the fixed bar when mowing straight lines or should there be a gap there to allow for steering? The manual says to have 1 - 1.25" gap but I don't think I can adjust the rods that much, unless the belts are stretched and need to be replaced. Any tips on getting this set up properly?

    When I am mowing straight, there is a gap between the T-bar and the handle frame. Being 3 or more years old you may want to replace the belts anyway.
