Center link on this car is fixed, thank goodness. The tie rod was set with a narrow metal tape measure and wrapped it around the whole assembly, kind a like measure circumference and set the new one to the same measurement as the old one. It seemed to work great as the steering wheel is the same as before the work. Have an appointment for an alignment tomorrow.

An no I am not the one with oil vacuum pump issue.

If you replace a tie rod end and don't get the length right, the car won't
necessarily pull, but the toe-in will be incorrect and the steering wheel will
be off center.
If you get the center link wrong, the steering wheel will be off center.

If your steering wheel is centered, you're probably OK, unless both parts are
out of adjustment and moving the wheel in opposite directions.

BTW, were you the fellow with the 94-95 300D that was out of service for an
extended time while waiting for a vacuum pump or oil pump or something after the
vacuum pump self destructed?

Mitch.
