Question 82' 245 Speedo off after fixing odometer gears

Hi, as the title says I am having some issues with my speedo after swapping out an odometer gear. I haven't actually tested to see how off it is, but I would say it is over about 15% when driving.

When I was troubleshooting the odometer I spun the small brass part on the back where the actual speedometer cable attaches to, thinking that it would move the odometer. What I am thinking is that doing so somehow stretched or altered the wound metal wire spring that the needle attaches to.

I am thinking of just trying to spin it the other direction, see if that would fix it.

Anyone have any an issue like this? I've searched around a bunch and haven't really found much about this specifically.
