I remember back when I was ten or eleven years old watching my father do
the clutch on his beetle and he had a five or six foot length of angle
iron (it may even have been scavenged from a cheap metal bed frame) that
he'd drilled a couple holes in and bolted to the engine to keep it from
rolling over when cranking stuff on and off. I don't recall exactly where
he attached it, but I reckon one might be able to affix such a thing to the
transmission mounting points on a wasserboxer. Dunno if this is even a
workable approach here, but I figured I might as well throw the notion out
