Don't forget to check the front hub speedometer housing. If the interlocking mechanism for the speedometer gear wasn't properly matched up the last time the wheel was off, it may have finally lost the ability to drive the gear. The tabs on the speedometer cable are rather weak, and will bend when mated up to the wheel hub, if the slot and tabs are not lined up. I have found this to be more common than bad cables. Sometimes the speedometer / odometer won't work at all if not properly assembled. Sometimes they will work for a while. YMMV.
