Got to thinking about your speedometer, is it the drive on the front wheel that has the bent drive tangs? If it is, you can clean it up with some solvent, soak it in oil for a day, then shoot some" PB Blaster " into it's guts and try to work it loose. Your drive tangs got bent when it's worm gear seized up, needle nose pliers and a keen eyeball should straighten them out. If there's a zerk on it, grease it. Check the speedometer cable to be sure it's not frozen, and pull the insides out and grease them for good measure. Hope this helps.
