There is a steel cable that runs from your transmission to the back of the speedometer. There is a small gear on the transmission end that  spins the cable. The spinning cable deflects the speedometer needle on the other end. 

I would check the back of the gauge first, the connection can become loose or broken pretty easily, especially if you've had the dash apart.

ok,  update,   boy to replace the speedometer what a pain,    you have to take the whole dash apart,   next time I'll pay someone to do it,  in my younger days it may have been fun,   but thats long gone,

Oh I just knew you'd say something. They were all neatly zip tied to the main under dash harness, but took up too much room to fit the AC pieces I'm now installing. It'll work out fine grasshopper.
