itit has to do with it being two stroke like bivens said...the old 2 stroke Detroit diesels were the same way....if you turned the motor over with the key and the engine kicked back just as you let off the key it would run in reverse....so my question is....if the engine is running backwards, would I have 10 gears in reverse and 2 forward?
