A bike for Boris Johnson, sunglasses for Vladimir Poetin, some of the gifts US president Joe Biden brought to Europe.
Plenty of symbolic of course.
Men can easily understand Johnson is too slow and needs a bike to keep up, and Vladimir, well, cover your eyes with our first class sunglasses so you can’t see what we’re doing in the rest of the world….probably there’s some other symbolic behind it officially….
You don’t need any special gifts, for sure no symbolic behind it, just to keep up with the latest BBT news.
Let us present you our latest additions and some more product info that makes our VW life’s easier.
Thinking to convert your 6volt car into 12 volts? Or is your car already converted ?
For cars built prior to 1965 the starter motor might give a small headache with the 109 teeth early “6Volt” flywheel.
Later on Volkswagens had the 130 Teeth “12 volt” flywheel.
We solved that problem now with our new state of the art 12 volt starter engine with a “large” 29mm gear on a “thick” 12.50mm shaft.
This is a 12 volt starter motor in a 6 volt design for perfect use on your early 109 teeth smaller diameter flywheel.
Ready to mount and comes with new starter bushing for your bell housing.
Another problem for the VW community solved.
Splittie bus Safari lovers may we have your attention please?
Because NOT happy with what was around we digged deeper to use our own safari windows as originally intended.
Between your wing nuts and the slider bars that keep your Safari windows open should be phenolic washers to be correctly.
This is how Safari windows have been designed by Volkswagen originally.
These special washers protect the chrome (or paint) from your glider bars and make sure you can clamp the window in every desired position.
Many aftermarket brands use plastic or nylon washers which has a different effect.
You need one on each side of the glider bar per wing nut, so a total of 8 pcs per car.
Sold each. Dealers please check our quantity pricing.
T25/T3 Vanagon lovers if you have petrol (or diesel) smell, or replacing your fuel tank, we now supply the correct filler neck seal to accomplish this task!
Fits all year T25/T3 vanagons, whatever engine model.
Last but not least this week we like to present you this double tapered roller bearing for your late model transmission.
Something we planned to stock for light years finally made it.
Very easy recognizable this double tapered roller bearing fits your differential shaft on all of your 1973 and later Type1 transmissions.
Will fit also all bay window transmissions 1968-1979.
Fits also all T25/T3 Vanagon transmissions 1980-1992 including the front differential of the T25/T3 Vanagon Synchro 4 wheel drive.
Made by OE manufacturer, original quality!
Earlier model differential shaft bearing for Beetle and splittie bus is on its way too.
Another load of orders came in last week, let’s bring a few of the longer backorders to your attention.
This week we feature a few items which could easily be overlooked.
The rubber you see pictured below serves as a buffer between the seat frame and the cabin seat mounting panel.
It protects against paint damage and acts as a sound dampener.
These rubbers have been used on all bus models.
Are you refurbishing, replacing or upgrading the swaybar on your super beetle?
Don’t forget to order these bolts and washers.
Euro Bay windows didn’t have side reflectors but the US models did.
Lately we see a mix of US and EURO model buses all over the world with especially a lot of US models here in Europe.
As demand for the almost always broken or missing reflectors have grown in the last few years, we’re pleased BBT can present a whole line of replacement reflectors and associated hardware.
Our complete family of side reflectors and hardware can be found HERE
