I have seen these things run backwards many times. It is more common than ppl think. What happens is when starting the engine backfires cand causes the engine to run backwards. Or the truck is parked in a forward gear and the switch is left on and it is pushed backwards and it fires. The engine is compression ignition so all it needs is compression to fire the engine. Just shut it down and restart and it will run fine. I am old school 63B My mos designator was Power Generation Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic. Pick that up way back in 1979.

Same thing happened to me but on a M984A1 HEMTT wrecker don't try and put the truck in drive while the PTO is on and using the main winch can cause the engine to turn backwards.


Maintenance, It's what keeps the Army in the Fight
