Yes not recomended with wore out engine mounts. can cause bad results. The torque loading shouldnt be too much if done in a correct gear for speed you are traveling though. I kick over in 4th mostly again depends upon speed and I have not had much probblems. you may have things to fix if it is hard starting and bucks when engaged.
Something else Most dont conscider is compression ratio high compression engines bump harder. And if your using the key it is possible it restarts in clear flood mode thinking it has stumbled or stalled previously. due to ignition flash times. try counting to 3 from key off b4 returning to run position. "unless steering lock is an issue". Then I dont recomend you do it at all! install a shut off switch. Hope this answers all your concerns.
