[MR2] Towing 93 Turbo

My kids had an old Chevrolet Tracker, and it started coming apart at about 60K. Needed brake rotors at 40K. Then Electronics, then water pumps, radiator, hoses.
But, IIRC, the oil pump drives off the differential assembly gears on both the E-151 and 153 transmissions. Thus, tow that sucker on down here.

Subject: [MR2] Towing 93 Turbo
I know this subject has come up at times and I've seen various answers,
both pro and con.
I'd like to know if anyone has flat towed a 93 Turbo. I would expect
that the transmission would be adequately lubricated, but it does have
an oil pump, I think driven off of the input shaft, so I'm not sure if
this would affect lubrication. I'm considering towing it behind my
motorhome on a few occasions, but I may purchase a small older 4WD, like
a Tracker, instead.
