April 2012


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….

Door check strap cargo door

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.

Cabine door lock catch, left/right

Karmann Ghia 08/55-07/63
141 837 295

Last year we had a lot of problems with the door lock catch for the Karmann Ghia, built before end of July 1963. Originally they came in plastic and they had the intention to break real fast, especially as so many door hinges on Ghia’s have little play and don’t align very well with locking mechanism. We decided to team up with a German CNC manufacturer and designed this door lock catch in aluminum to the highest tolerances. Aluminum has the characteristic, that it will not break of course. At the same time we redesigned, that we could easily make one piece fitting for left as well right side, what made us to rename all under the BBT part 0438-750 and we could delete BBT ref 0438-751. BBT ref 0438-750 will fit left as  well as right as one unique part. We finished the part in anodised black for proper looking to match originals. Sold each.

The cable that unlocks the Karmann Ghia front hood runs from model year 1968 in a PVC hosing through the front hood. This hosing prevents that the cable gets clamped or damaged, though when they are old the outer cable can harden. Consequently this protection can  break and tear when manipulating. The adjustment of the front hood cable is no longer properly working and you can't unlock the front hood anymore. We recommend to replace the damaged outer cable at the first signs of age by a new correctly fitting item. Available each from stock.

211 405 129A x4

These seals have the purpose to close the connection between the suspension arms and the front axle with Type 2 buses from 08/67-07/79, so that grease remains in the front axle and prevents that sand and humidity can enter into the front axle stock. This last fact can have very destructive consequences on the front axle bearing and suspension arms running surface. So it's better to replace  torn and hardened items immediately. We can deliver these seals per 4 pieces in original VW quality.

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


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.

Parts such as engine case, crankshaft, cylinder heads, but also rods have to be revised once in a while. Wear and damage can be that serious, that parts must be replaced. We can deliver you since shortly the original VW rods from stock, so that the revision of your 13/1600cc engine block can be done properly.

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.

Fortunately things have changed and now you can replace the used or torn belt by a new item. Available each.

12 volt coil Beru with clamp (German)

We now have the BERU alternative for you, high-quality, also made in Germany… and it is the brand that we use on all BBT vehicles., if we may say so to our entire satisfaction. Beru works and Beru is strong! Highly recommended on behalf of the BBT team!

Rubber sleeve between carburetor and air filter

Bus 11/63 - 07/67

211 129 627

This sleeve takes care on Type 2 11/63-07/67 and  Karmann Ghia 66-07/67  of the connection between air cleaner and carburetor, so that only filtered air can get into the combustion components.

From now on you can replace your damaged item.

Pre-heater pipe to aircleaner

Type 1
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. This pipe is available each from stock.

In this way only it's possible for passengers to take a seat at the back of the vehicle.

Tow hitch, Westfalia model

Bus 08/58-07/67

For many among us, VW enthusiasts, nothing speaks more to our imagination than travelling in our beloved Volkswagen. 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 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 1.5l

G 011 ABC A1

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.
