    Sounds kinda familiar, but it could also be a misfire. I did a compression test, cyls 1-7 are all right around 145-155 psi (10-10,5 bar) and I can't...

    I think I can feel the bucking in 1st, and maybe even on very light throttle in some scenarios in 3rd. Was going to check the spark plug wire...

    If 3rd and OD are locked, direct drive gears, the trans shouldn't be trying to do anything else while in gear? Right? Since there's no converter...
