Welcome to our weekly newsletter… BBT News… soon the new name for our weekly Friday product update !
Being busy is good and we received a lot of new items and filled our stocks with existing items… we’re ready for a real exciting fall!
For the T25/T3 Vanagon with Diesel engines we have now a brand new oil sump. The oil sumps from te diesel models are not made of steel, which make them rather fragile. The reason they’ve been made from a softer material is for a better cooling of course.
Many times the oil sump is rather cracked in places or the drain plug gallery is all worn out. Our new pans solve both of these problems!
We strongly advise to tighten the oil drain plug to torque as the manual prescribe. This in order to maximize the life spam of your oil sump.
Our oil sump is also needed when you decide to upgrade your T25/T3 vanagon to a later engine conversion out of another model from the Volkswagen range (like the very popular TDI versions) this because the engine in the back of the bus is mounted under a certain angle.
We have the alternator for your Type 4 engine ready from the shelves now. Seems to work all fine and survived our rather rough test program. Finally a good solution for your charging program at a real good price.
Our sheet metal range keeps on expanding. Now we have the brace under the dashboard readily available. Shall the dashboard be next???? Stay tuned!
Also the lower inner front panel is available now and ready in our shelves for direct delivery.
Perfect fit as all of OUR silver weld through primer sheet metal. Beware for cheap imitation!
Only BBT certifies the quality!
Because of popular demand we brought back these lowered spindles for late bay window bus (or to convert earlier buses)
One piece forged for the perfect job.
With the right parts, you can use these on earlier buses too and get your bus converted for disc brakes at once… For split window buses you will need a 68-69 front axle and trailing arms, for early bay they’re pug and play. Of course all further necessary disc brake parts are available all from your favourite BBT dealer.
The BBT News team wishes you a wonderful and relaxing weekend…. sweet VW dreams!
