Ratchet Motor Sharing

Hey I really need help with trying to configure something. I have tried to the best of my ability to save motors and I was wondering if there was a way my intake could spin one way and when it spins the other way I could spin a winch using ratchets . I found a YouTube video that showed one but it didn’t show the system. So do y’all have any ideas ?

Here’s a collection of helpful motor sharing links:

I really need help to be competitive with the teams that have pnuematics ( my school barely has funding for robotics at all ) I really need to be able to make a ratchet to motor share with my intake.

Passive ratchet.
