Think about it. If the steering wheel was straight from the factory and the pitman arm was centered (which is what you are saying), then as long as the steering wheel stays straight, the pitman arm will too.
The only way to have the gearbox off center is to rotate the steering wheel in relation to the steering gear worm shaft.
You are correct in that the steering gear sector needs to be centered on the nut for straight driving. As long as the steering wheel is centered and has not been rotated in relation to the worm shaft, the sector gear will be centered.

I have to agree with that, if the shaft, yokes, nor wheel have never been pulled. I took it for granted that mine has been pulled a dozen times at least.
My bad Knifeboy, I didn't understand what you were saying.
