I got a van with a malfunctioning transmission/transaxle. It behaves like in neutral no matter what I put it on, so I can't drive it. I want to move it to a house garage, but to enter that garage it needs to go uphill. The driveway is very confined, so I don't think a tow would be able to leave it in the position I want it. As things are, my best chance would be to have the tow leave it uphill in the driveway, let the car go downhill to get some momentum and turn to enter the garage, but the turn is too sharp, so I don't think it would work.
I was thinking that the surest scenario could be to use a winch to pull it into the garage, but I don't want to have to drill into the wall or ground to use as anchor. I was wondering if there was some sort of portable post that could be used for this. Something that would maybe convert the pulling force into a push into the ground without flipping over. Something like a low post on a tripod with 2 long legs extending forward with rubber for traction.
I haven't found something like this, and I'm not completely sure the physics of it make sense. In any case, if someone knows of a better solution, I'd be grateful to know about it.
