Even odd words can be oddly even

This is an entry to the Fortnightly Topic Challenge #25: .

How it works
You are given 3 clues, ODD, EVEN and FULL. The answer to each clue is a single word. The ODD and EVEN words are anagrams using the ODD and EVEN letters of the FULL word.

Example:

FULL - Rearranged letters
ODD - Hindu goddess
EVEN - Persistent shew

Answer:

FULL - ANAGRAM
ODD - MARA (a, a, r, m)
EVEN - NAG (n, g, a)

Make sense? Good.

Now it's your turn
1.

FULL: Major revolution
ODD: Surprise attacks
EVEN: Missing light

2.

FULL: Keeping obedience
ODD: Sent away
EVEN: Popping ears

3.

FULL: Single plane
ODD: Pocket fuzz
EVEN: Toothy turner

4.

FULL: Ruler measure
ODD: Carangid fish
EVEN: Fork bit

2 Answers

Full answers:

1. FULL: Major revolution: INDUSTRIAL
ODD: Surprise attacks: IDSRA* → RAIDS
EVEN: Missing light: NUTIL* → UNLIT

2. (with help from @YowE3K and OP)

FULL: Keeping obedience: ENFORCER ? (verb/subject mismatch)
ODD: Sent away: EFRE* → FREE
EVEN: Popping ears: NOCR* → CORN
if FULL is "Enforcing", which makes sense, even is "CORN" which also makes sense, and odd "FEIGN" ...

3. FULL: Single plane: TRIANGLE, I think? (3 points, defining a single plane)
ODD: Pocket fuzz: TINL* → LINT
EVEN: Toothy turner: RAGE* → GEAR

4. FULL: Ruler Measure: DISTANCE
ODD: Carangid fish: DSAC* → SCAD
EVEN: Fork bit: ITNE* → TINE

• How is "Sent away" = feign? Doesn't feign mean faking something?

• It doesn't, or I would have made that my answer. I'm still trying to find something that works. :)

• @Rubio - I have put up an "answer", but only so that you can edit it into yours without me having to put it as a comment without spoilers Commented Jan 25, 2017 at 18:21
• @Rubio I'm unfamiliar with your answer for 2-full starting with an i, perhaps you meant to start with an e? Commented Jan 25, 2017 at 18:21
• @DavidStarkey "Obedience keeper" might be better there

Partial answer

1.

FULL: Major revolution = INDUSTRIAL (Industrial revolution)
ODD: Surprise attacks = IDSRA* = RAIDS
EVEN: Missing light = NUTIL* = UNLIT

I had 3 and 4 before Rubio posted them, but was trying to get all 4 before posting...
