    Sounds to me like you are lugging the engine...

    Lugging and possibly worn hanger bearing, and engine mounts, making it more noticeable.

    I grew up in the drilling industry here in WV, so there was always a hill to climb somewhere.

    Uncle Lester had a 1960 IH B170 with a 392 V8 / 5spd / 2spd. Had a Bucyrus Erie 21W drilling rig mounted on it. On a hard pull the engine would pull down to the point the cab would start vibrating and ringing, it would nearly make your head hurt!

    I’m sure others have experienced the same from years gone by…

    Had a 1956 Chevy 5 Ton flatbed truck on the farm growing up... It would do the same thing with a big load of hay pulling up the hill to the stack yard.
