The pivot in the spot shown can be wiggled, meaning I can pull the seat stay. I have checked the pivot, the cup and cone thing and it does not tighten this area. Is this normal? The cone adjuster does not seem to snug this up.

Are the bearings shot?

When you say "Tightening the cone adjuster" are you tightening the 5mm bolt? If so that bolt is only there to pinch the main pivot bolt and hold it in position. You have to remove the 5mm bolt and pop out the cone to get access to a 8mm main pivot bolt. That should be pre-loaded to 60 in-lbs.

But either way its odd for movement to develop. You should be removing the hardware to inspect for any bearing damage.
