    Looking a the assembly it appears that the "Linear" and "Rack and Pinion" are already linked. You can see what I mean in the gif linked below:

    I want entire assembly to be animated in unison. As it is now, it is disjointed. To accomplish what I want, the ROD has to be linked with the WHEEL GEAR,
    it is "hanging in the air" now.
    What Connectors should be used to do it?
    What you have shown is exactly what I have, not what I want.
    Thank you

    To connect the link and the wheel you would want to use a cylinder mate as this constrains all DOF except movement along the rotating axis as well as rotation around the axis.
