109 & 110 body->frame mount difference

What is different, from bulkhead to rear cross member, between a 109 and 110?

well for one, the ambulance body used an additional outrigger that was a fair bit longer than the factory outriggers. these were welded onto the 109's rear spring hangers.

I think I saw that one. Goes from the rear crossmember back?

I'm going to get all the non-normal bits. Mostly looking for chassis differences between 109 and 110. Can you just bolt a 109 tub to a 110 frame? I thought yes?

I dont have the body in front of me just looking to plan ahead.

you can bolt it on but the wheel openings are in very much different places and don't line up for shit.
There are pictures posted on here somewhere if you search.

It bolts right on, with the possible exception that a couple tabs might be in a different place (I believe this is a IIa/III distinction, but it does not matter because all you have to do is drill two more holes on each side in the front panel of the 109 tub.

I have never put an ambulance body on so I have no idea what is different. I remember when RN had tons of them and you could get them really cheap, so cheap, people bought them as sheds.

Great. Good to hear the mounts are indeed similar.
Right now I know I need to deal with the rear crossmember extensions, wheel well position, fuel filler, and the door latches.

Interesting about RN, how long ago was that? Shipping a body to the west would probably cost what I paid for this one.

Jeff- thanks for the offer, I may take you up on that. What are you up to before christmas?

~10-12 years ago. They bought ex-MOD ambulances and then fitted regular pick up beds. BTW, the ambulance body is heavier than the SW or regular tub. Might want to think about your rear springs while you have the body off.

That would be great. I'm probably going to have to order them from your side of the pond. Cheers!

No probs. I found my set on ebay, they come up now and again... certainly cheaper than buying "new", think i paid about 20 for the whole shebang.

and part #'s....

part # 21 inner spring RRC3266 (x2) 52.35 ukp (each)
#22 top cap RRC3352 (x2) 28.20 (each)
#23 lower cap LR018027 (was RRC3355) (x2) 26.19 (each)
#18 Bolt FS110306 (x4) but they're just an M10x30 1.32 (as opposed to M10x25, as the lower cap takes up some of the bolt length)
