I finally got my speedo out, thanks to Peter for posting that question to
the list for me.  I used the above mentioned instructions, which are
correct, but they do not tell you how to get the odometer mechanism out, so
you can adjust the pot-metal gear!  I managed to figure out a way to get it
out but then I did not adjust the gear enough and it stopped working again.

this is turning into a week long project.  Two days to get the speedo out
and two more to adjust it (Sorry to vent).

I will have to update the instructions I sent to some of you with the way
that I removed the gear.
