Ok, you messed up the speedo when you pulled and pushed on the shaft.
There's no question about that.
But what's done is done.
I see you have a 1997.
Call you DMV and explain your situation.
(I would have tried to look up the info for you, but I dont know where you live)
in some cases you have to attach a sticker to the door pillar saying what the mileage was when you replaced the odometer, and what the replacement (used) odometer had on it.
Some state, after the car is 10 years old, they dont care what the odometer says.
