It seems to be seated on the bottom end. Cant tell if it is going far enough up inside the speedometer at the top end, but it seems to go in a half to 3/4 inch. Don't know what else to do.
Did you make sure it was seated into the drive? If you unscrew it from the speedo, and watch the end while turning the front wheel, can you see the inner core turning?

Yes, I did that, and it was not turning. It sure felt seated, so I pulled the other end from the speedometer drive and spun the wheel. The internal pin in the speedo drive was not turning consistently (would for a second, then would stop). I now believe I have isolated the problem as a bad speedometer drive.
