1) I put the needle back on wrong. It it supposed to be
pre0-tensioned against the stop?
There should definitely be some tension there. Would a stop be necessary
if there were no tension on the needle?
2) I did accidently hit the black wheel that is on the side of
speedo unit. Has a spring wrapped around it and a couple of arms that
grapb the teeth. I dont know what this does. Is the calibration thing?
No, as it uncoils it draws closer to a point where it either opens or
closes a circuit to illuminate the check engine light, around 60,000

resistance to knock out the infamous white odo gear that (*&^(*^*^
There's some special tool that speedo shops use to remove the needle
shaft. It's bad to break the thing off and try to reglue it. For the
life of me, I have no idea how that tool works. If I ever have a junked
speedo I _will_ find out!
