I found it great you are getting some useful work from your car. And it looks great in the photos too.
So the engine kicked back when you were cranking. No not unusual. I grew up on a farm before self starters and power steering. One very quickly learned to hold ones thumbs over the outer of the crank. And without power steering the steering wheel would kick like the crank and likewise one learned to keep thumbs folded on the outer wheel. You keep those stories coming.
Thanks! I love driving my car and I do as much as I can. I love seeing people's faces light up when I drive by or hit the horn. I knew to keep my thumb out in case of kickback, but I never though about not pushing down for the same reason.
