You'll break the 1 way bearing on the pullstart. Not sure if that is the only problem.

This is the funniest thing i read all day bumping it over on a box is no different than the engine running. to answer your question you can do it all day long and not hurt a thing. Only way you would damage anything is to turn over motor backwards.

Yes no problem.
You need to make sure the box spins the flywheel in the correct direction or you will break the pull start string/handle right off.
