Preface

Spring! Finally!

Our favorite season has arrived, fresh green colors in most parts of the Northern hemisphere transform nature and parks in pieces of art. The blooming of nature each time after the Winter is a spectacle by no means to be sneezed at. It brings hope and you notice it immediately on people. In the streets, in shops, just around you, in your favorite club or even at work. When you are honest with yourselves you see it even in your mirror, yes we too are changing when new fresh green leafs are blooming. The young animal awakes in us, each springtime again, as a playful foal in the meadow, and that’s good for sure!

Will the economy also revive happy as a young foal in the meadow ? I’m afraid that I can’t show the same optimism. We’re floating away economically. That’s logical, the Western economy is based on the fact that profits go to the rich and debts to the State. When Forbes announced at the beginning of March the top of Dollar multimillionaires , it strikes me how much richer the wealthy citizens of our planet have become, most of them have just doubled their capital in a couple of years. It’s not their fault of course, they’ve previously laid the foundation for it, it’s just owing to the system. On the other hand poverty is expanding too.

This uncertainty appears to bring along a huge potential for our sector. Inflation is high, the ECB is stamping a great deal of money in order that the monetary crisis will not turn out into a great depression. Apparently black Thursday and the depression of the Thirties are still in our mind. Consequently a massive inflation can’t be turned away. Nowadays money on the bank costs more than it yields . In other words interest rates are lower that the inflation. Many people wish therefore to invest their money in something concrete and let our oldtimers just be the hit of these new technologies. Prices of top cars are rising to unknown heights throughout the world. When the top of the mountain is rising, the base will inevitably become wider and just right there we are with our Volkswagen story at the flank of the economical mountain. We all can only become better from it.

Being a wholesale company we are ready to assist our distributors. Our stock is bigger than ever and our logistics are sharp. We’re prepared for the new season and we’re looking forward to work at full speed. Now we’ve got used to our new infrastructure we can pick quicker, pack better, deliver more, we’re just ready to encounter this beautiful season together with our customers.

My Spring greetings are to wish you all, customers, suppliers, friends and sympathizers that all your dreams come true, happy as a foal in the meadow and if possible even a bit more….

0438-600   Bus -12/60
211 841 387
Side doors of -07/67 buses are designed  as such that they can be completely opened without problems. Therefore there is a maximal access to the rear passengers and/or cargo part. In order to avoid damage  to the body when doors open wide, VW has created a door check by means of a textile strap which is fixed at the underside of the side doors. These straps are made of textile and due to age they are often torn. From now on we can deliver them both, versions differing in length, each from stock.

141 837 295
Many owners of Karmann Ghia can confirm that the body hasn’t the same rigidity  as the VW Beetle. That’s why a good locking of the doors is sometimes a quiet susceptible part with Karmann Ghia. Due to friction on the body, parts related to suspension and securing  the doors can suffer a lot and also the lock catches don’t escape this wear and tear wastage. When traveling you will surely like that doors are kept locked and as lock catches are the principal part, we’ve decided to take this item for model -07/63 into our program. Lock catches are sold each and per side.

This aluminum dashboard molding kit is already for quite some time for sale in our local shop in St.-Job-in-'t-Goor as an alternative for used dashboard moldings. In the meantime our stock of second-hand moldings has reduced a lot, which has made us decide to take this set now as a continuously available part in our program.

Hazard switch, universal, 7 connections

0636-290
With the actual traffic it is essential to drive with a good electrical installation and proper lighting. This applies also on the indicator switches, which were installed on Type 1 Beetles from the late sixties with an hazard indicator signals function, so that in case of danger or breakdown all the 4 indicator signals could be ignited. Many owners of older models wish to provide their vehicle with this function too. The classic hazard switch with indicator light and connection code according to numbering used by Volkswagen that BBT has now in its range, can be installed in a correct way on older vehicles.

Bumperretainer on plate rear, left

0889-370

The shift part on Type 25 buses consists of a relatively complex unit of gear linkage, shift parts and boots, which should all be in good condition. On this condition only shifting gear can go smoothly and damage at the gear box will be prevented. #1409-560 is the boot that protects the rear gear linkage against dirt and humidity. #1409-600 is the gear shift joint on  the gearbox. It is manipulated through an elbow gate. Due to frequent use this joint can wear off and turn out to play. This play will immediately provoke bad shifting. Both parts are available each from stock.

Bolt for H-Beam connecting rods

1602-295
In competition such as crossing and drag racing the revision of the engine is a returning event, where many components of the engine block are used for several times. This applies also on the H-beam connecting rods, like those we present under # 1602-15 -> 1602-23. The bolts for assembly of these rods are nevertheless less appropriate to be used again and we recommend to replace them upon each revision. We can offer these bolts in a good quality each from stock.

You don’t have to replace the entire cylinder head, but revision can offer a solution. Valves, cones of valve, valve conductors… we can deliver them all from stock, but until now we hadn’t the valve springs for sale, which is also a part very susceptible to use. We can deliver them from now on each from stock for all aircooled type 4 engines.

Oil cooler adapting seal kit, 8 mm to 10 mm

1824-200
This oil cooler adapting seal is designed for assembly of an oil cooler installed outside the fan shroud on single port Type 1 based engines, of which  the oil cooler used to be originally assembled directly on the engine case. In this way it’s possible to obtain the same cooling capacity for a single port Type 1 engine without harming  the original look. Sold per set for assembly on 1 oil cooler.

111 115 487
The oil cap seal is originally made from cork, though the cap will harden and crumble after many years. The sealing function will consequently  be reduced and the risk that small parts of the cork will get into the motor oil is quite considerable. We can deliver you from now on a correct fitting and oil resistant seal each from stock.

For many years the correct measure was for  for sale in our shop only, but due to an irregular availability it wasn’t possible to take it into our program. Fortunately things have changed and now you can replace the used or torn belt by a new item. Available each.

113 119 519G
Correctly assembled engine plate work is essential for a proper functioning without problems of your aircooled engines. That’s why it is important that plate work is in optimal condition. Corrosion caused by temperature fluctuations and weather influences can seriously damage the plate work, so that it can’t be no longer used. The pipe which is now in our range can be found near the V-belt driving disc. Its function is to intercept the pre-heated air, that comes between the cylinders and the cylinder head. The heated air is captured through this pipe and guided to the carburetor by means of the air cleaner, in order to achieve an optimal substance for an effective combustion.

It’s not different for those who own a split bus and we see this each time when we attend a meeting or organize a convoy. We often love to take some extra facilities on our trips and a trailer for additional equipment and/or back-up or a caravan for extra sleeping accommodation belong also to these facilities. A tow hitch is therefore essential. BBT offers you this tow hitch in a nice good reproduction suitable for assembly on Type 2 buses from 08/58-07/67.

Castrol Classic oil

8510-001  XL20W50 1200ppm(1l)
Castrol Classic oil seems to be the perfect match with our aircooled engines, which explains of course the popularity of this very useful liquid. Cans of 1 gallon/ 4,54 liter (# 8510-004) are very practical for maintenance, though they are not so easy to take along for refill, if necessary. The 1 liter cans 20W50 Castrol oil are available each or per packing unit of 12 pieces.

Radiator antifreeze

8511-150  1.5l
For many among us, fans of the classic VW, it is still an inexplicable riddle why VW has decided at a certain moment to switch over to water cooled engines... What’s more the cooling water has the nasty characteristic to freeze in the winter. This can damage the radiator, water tubes and water pump, which causes in  general awkward costs. For prevention you can add antifreeze cooling oil to the cooling water. Available in barrels of 1,5L, which you need to dilute. 1 on 1 part water gives 3L of cooling liquid with a protection till -36°C / 2 on 3 parts water gives 7,5L cooling liquid with a protection till -24°C and 3 on 2 parts of water results in 7,5L cooling liquid with a protection till -52°C.
