Hi Andrew

if I understood your question right you generate the two fragments by PCR 
and you like to combine them in a third PCR reaction. That is the 
same method which I used for site directed mutagenesis. In this 
case I would say the linker is to short. I used a 20 bp overlap 
between the two fragments. I purified the fragments by 
Phenol/Chloroform extraction and Ethanol precipitation to remove 
the primers.
