Thanks, Hart. I did what Barnyard recommended. Since I needed to run a U turn, I turned the wheel as much as possible, pulled with my 4-wheeler and kept pulling, jumping off and turning the wheel and repeating until I straightened it directly in front of my garage bay. Worked fine. And I was moving it so slowly that it was unlikely that anything bad would happen.

Pulling from the drawbar with the rope angling forward between the wheels at changing angles worked well.

Thanks, Glen. You have a good eye for detail. I'll check that adjustment. Now that it's in the garage, I can go through it completely and get it fully serviceable by spring.

I have moved a 40 ton tank by hand (on a level concrete floor) using this method.

Funny, :lol: Urbish -- but good to know. I'll hold off on moving tanks until my shoulder heals.
