Q: steering wheel play on 2004 Lincoln LS

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
2004 Ls Lincoln. I have about a 1/16 steering wheel play left or right before I feel it engauging the rack&pinion assemble while driving. Is this normal? Something to add,I just had the motor replaced and I don't seem to remember this before. Any thoughts?

Perhaps there is play in a tie rod end giving you that excess play, the vehicle needs to be jacked up and properly supported with both front wheels off the ground to examine what in the suspension or steering may be causing a little excess play.
