'68-74 Nova(and '67-69 Camaro) there are no wear parts in the centerlink, its just a shaped bar with holes. The wear joints are in the pitman arm on the steering box, the idler arm on the frame, and both ends of the tierods. The centerlink should never need replacing.

Last time we looked for a center link for a buddy's '68, we had a hell of a time finding one. Ended up getting lucky and found one NOS at the Turkey Rod Run in Daytona, FL.

They might not wear out, but they DO bend...

Good point on the bent bar(accident damage), didn't think of that.

Op wanted to know how to rebuild one, there is no rebuilding to it as it has no moving parts in it.

Not to get OT, but I had thought the radiator support was going to be hard, but we ended up w/a choice of them. Sure didn't count on the drag link being the beech.

The '67-'69 Firebird and '71-'74 Ventura relay rod came with a greasable stud joint where the pitman arm attaches, and those cars used a simple pitman arm with a hole in both ends. Why? I don't know, ask Pontiac.

The Pontiac setup is interchangeable with '68-'74 Nova & '67-'69 Camaro stuff, as long as the pitman arm and relay rod are compatible with each other. Yours might have been switched, either at the factory, or later on. You can use either setup on your Nova.
