        There is a wire that passes through the T-bar.  On top of the 
wire there is a lump of metal that the T-Bar presses against when you
lift the T-bar.  The other end of the wire is braised into the reverse
lockout "key".  To replace the T-Bar you have to melt the brass that
is securing the wire to the "key".  once the key is loose  then the 
wire can be pulled up through the T-bar and out the top of the shifter
handle.  The T-bar will then come out sideways from the assy.  I have
had both a Tiger shifter and a similar mustang shifter apart to swap
the mustang T-bar in place of the broken Tiger T-Bar.  There were
springs inside both shifters to apply the tension on the T-Bar.  The
Mustang had an extra spring above the T-Bar as well.
        To replace the T-bar and solid wire you will need a torch
to braise the wire into the "key".
