If you didn't release the clutch - you should be fine. And if you did release the clutch I think you would have known it. Going into 1st at 75 mph would create a big noticeable jerk.

Good luck!...

I used one one on a prior car and it caused micro swirl scratches. Stopped using it and threw it out. In fairness it was a black car and it was very difficult to keep scratch free.

Yes, I do that anytime I get caught by the skip shift. I don’t like lugging the engine by going into fourth. Third gear works much better.

I used my bench vise to hold the cable lug and cut the lug with a hack saw.

Good luck and find a way to get that cable connected to the block. You’ll be glad you did.

Wow! That's a lot of oil. This is no small leak. I think that is in the area of the oil filter. I'd start there especially since the leak seems to happen as oil pressure builds at start up.
