Re moving hand throttle when pushing down the foot feed, mine does the same thing. To open the carb when using the hand throttle, I have to move it all the way to the top. So any replies I will be watching too. The two moving at the same time, that might just be a cleaning and lube issue. Yes mine too!
You might also post on the Dodge Brothers Club face book page;

It has a lot more views and activity then this page and might get help faster.
Sorry if anyone finds that offensive, but is just the way it is.

I say carburetor.
Ignition problems are usually uniform regardless of speed or load.
If one was to set the valves, points, timing and carburetor as described in the DB Mechanics Manual either the engine will run properly or the source of trouble should be discovered.
It's important to adjust the valves first if that's what determines the crank position. The point gap should be set before setting the ignition timing. Widening the gap advances the timing and vice versa.
If the timing is set to go off after top center when the spark control is all the way down it should never kick back while hand cranking in that setting. Unless it was hot enough to diesel. Which is not likely.
If those things are in order and the engine has acceptable compression the only thing left is fuel.
if the fuel supply pump or tank is suspected that could be ruled in or out with a temporary gravity fed tank.
I hope that helps. Let me know what you find and feel free to tell me I'm full of BS.
P.S. Miles;
Give me your mailing address so I can send you the manual that you desperately need.
