I recently joined the club now that my dream of owning a 101 Ambi has become a reality . I'd like to have a Nokken winch on it, either to help me out of trouble or others. This lot on EBay looks interesting although incomplete. The missing component don't seem the most complicated ones to a new comer but before biding I'd value advice from experienced members on how difficult it would to have this unit working.
Thanks for your feed back.

hello
You can fit a nokken winch to a ambulance but it would involve the relocation of the two battery's and the removal/re-location of the air tank.

However you main problem would be the missing bits - there is a considerable amount of missing parts that you would have to make - I am not knocking your manufacturing skills but there are loads of small components/brackets and pulleys that you will need, I think that it is worth as a "nude" winch about 250-300 pounds! (but some might not agree!!)

Thanks Steve and Sponge,
sorry for my late reaction but the weekend was loaded with a home improvement job (new bathroom) which took longer than 101 project as there were more leaks than on my LR certainly less fun. On the 101 I bought the compressor and air tank were removed and the batteries displaced somewhere else as part of the camper modifications of the previous owner. So that would save me the trouble of moving those. I suppose on the ambulance the air tanks and batteries tray were seen as more valuable than the winch surely for the wounded soldier. As for getting out of trouble there should have been enough 101 GS with winch around to pull any ambi bogged down. In my case I'd like to drive off road some times but I'm not sure there would be enough 101GS around with winch to help out when I've exceeded my limits. Sometime I get trouble to get my 110 pulled out of some muddy places so with extra 800Kg of the Ambi, I'm not even sure what vehicle could pull an it out. Do you have any experience of pulling an Ambi out of trouble without a winch being involved?.

It would be easier, and probably cheaper to fit an electric winch. Martin does winch bumpers i believe.

I will be selling my Nokken soon, it is still fitted at the moment, and it will come with the gearbox and all the linkages.

It won't be cheap but buyer can see how it is fitted and where all the parts go

Ambis were never winch equipped from standard, but it has been done quite successfully on at least one vehicle I know of, and it works on the vehicle for all purposes without issue.

I believe the floor required some small mods also.
The guy who did it was a club member and posted on this forum as 'climbingchris' although I don't think he's been active for a few years now.
