Problems changing the steering wheel.

i have 2 Honda civic, so i change my momo steering wheel and hub to my eg and it worked perfectly. The only problem is how do i make the steering wheel straight now? NOTE: the steering wheel was a little off before because i hit a damn pot hole after i've did the alignment but everything should be fine. I just wanted to ask if it's possible to move the steering wheel straight without doing alignment or even move the toe both side using a chalk. Now the steering wheel is more off than it is it before because it is smaller. Second thing u know the turn signal switch, after u signal and u make a left turn it should click back, but because i have a really small momo steering wheel now it won't click back because my steering wheel is so small. Is there a way
i can fix this or is that life? I'm more concern about the straightness of my steering wheel because i hate driving when the steering wheel is crooked.

as all of u know that the momo hub uses the allan key and i know that if i move the steering wheel a little bit the other way it will still be crooked. Hope someone can reply me back thanx.

Note: after changing the steering wheel my steering is more lighter and more softer and it felt good. So anyone that can give me advice or help me that would be great thanx. PLS don't tell me to change back to my other steering wheel as i'm selling the other car soon.

First i had to pull the hub back out because it wasn't lined up properly for straightness. Before the hub wasn't sitting in there properly and u need to tighten the nut like no tomorrow, but now u will need a steering wheel pulley to take the hub off and it is still hard to take it off. U have to lined up the hub and also the piece behind the hub which makes the turn signal lights go back and fourth, they should be attached to the steering wheel. My steering wheel is still not that straight now and i can't get the hub off anymore and it's in there so hard, now i will have to move the toe myself by using the chalk. Just NOTE: if u plan to change your steering wheel or need to take it off, pls use a chalk or white out to mark the straightness so when u mount the hub on, it won't affect the steering wheel because u already know which is straight. I just had to tighten the nut a lot harder so it sits in place and now everything works fine, except i can;t get my hub off.
