No one can post a picture of the tie rod and both ends?

Thank You

Thank you all for the suggestions. I'm heading from Indiana to Florida later today and going to see how much the wheel being turned to the right annoys me. The good news is at least I know I won't chew through the tires since I just had it aligned.

Steering wheel

A good wheel alignemen man will first find the steering box high spot and than adjust the toe-in with the tie-rod adjustment and then adjust camber and caster. This is how a wheel alignement should be done.

The steering wheel centering is not done via tie rods on the F53 chassis.

Still doesn't show a picture regardless. Have never seen a motor vehicle that did not have adjustable tie rod ends.

I believe this may be a correct statement for the F53 chassis:

"Doesn't work that way on a Ford F53 chassis. No tie rod ends. Just one center link end adjustment. No adjustment on the drag link".

I could be wrong.

Even Ford is not that retarded. Impossible to turn wheels without tie rod ends. Even lawn tractors have them.

Be nice Bob. Even old Henry put tie rods on his old Model A's & T's. They haven't regressed that far.

What I was saying is there is no tie rod adjustment that can be made for centering the steering wheel and that is what this thread was addressing. At least that's what I've been led to believe by Ford. Here is the lube point locations:
