Here's a modification to allow palindromes optionally, and an "explain" routine that shows how a number factors in this way (if it does):

Clear[omariQ,omariD,explain]
reverse=FromDigits@Reverse@IntegerDigits@#&;
commonDivisors=Rest@Divisors@GCD[#,reverse@#]&;
omariQ[n_Integer,k_Integer,
palindromes_:False]:=(palindromes||n!=reverse@n)&&IntegerQ[n/k]&&
             k reverse[n/k]\[Equal]reverse@n
omariD[n_Integer,palindromes_:False]:=Select[commonDivisors@n,omariQ[n,#,\
palindromes]&]
omariQ[n_Integer,palindromes_:False]:=Length@omariD[n,palindromes]>0
explain[n_,palindromes_:
     False]/;omariQ[n,palindromes]:=Module[{o=omariD[n,palindromes],tmp},
     Print["The omari divisors of n = ",n," are o = ",o];
     Print["n/o : ",tmp=n/o];
     Print["reverse/@(n/o) : ",tmp=reverse/@tmp];
     Print["o reverse/@(n/o) : ",tmp=o tmp];
     ]
explain[__]:=Null

explain[17*242]
(no output)

explain[17*242, True]
"The omari divisors of n = "4114" are o = "{17, 34, 187, 374, 2057, 4114}
"n/o : "{242, 121, 22, 11, 2, 1}
"reverse/@(n/o) : "{242, 121, 22, 11, 2, 1}
"o reverse/@(n/o) : "{4114, 4114, 4114, 4114, 4114, 4114}

explain[627172]
"The omari divisors of n = "627172" are o = "{91}
"n/o : "{6892}
"reverse/@(n/o) : "{2986}
"o reverse/@(n/o) : "{271726}
