Friday Product Update

This week we add a couple of cool items for your bus!

First we have the good isolation set for your heater tube on your splittie bus, because the steel tube that brings the heat from the engine to the cab is long and literally under the car VW isolated this tube very well, with time most of this isolation is disappeared. we found the good isolation and bring it back to You. One kit is enough for one car….

Friday Product Update

The first of our new line springs …. Valve cover springs for the early type VW engines 25 and 30 DIN HP (that’s 36  HP SAE for our American friends using SAE norms). We teamed up with a very reliable spring factory in Belgium to make springs in a good quality, (read; equal or better as NOS items we gave them as samples)

This clip is made in spring steel! Simply a perfect fit, feel and smell, exactly like we want it! stop oil leaks by worn or tired original and behave for cheap reproductions that will never give You satisfaction because they will always leaking!

Because we choose for powder coat finish the ends might go kind a though in the cilinder head holes at mounting but once mounted they fit like original and do their job impeccable!

Available now from our stocks

Other model valve cover springs will follow soon for all Type 1 engines

Friday Product Update

We added this VDO Temp sensor to our range as it’s the perfect combo with our new adapter below and an oil pressure sender, because its shorter as our #2601 it don’t block the oil gallery in the adapter… for single use we still keep our BBT ref #2601 in our program. Comes with its washer.

2601-100 VDO oil temperature sensor with seal 180°C – 6-12volt – M13x1.5


This is the new adapter, carefully chosen for You… this adapter creates the perfect set up for your Oil temperature and pressure sensors on your VW Type 1 engines… as well as for many other applications… the hole for the temp sensor is larger to get a better feeling from the actual temperature, what’s an important improvement!

2600-100 Adapter for oil pressure and oil temperature sensor (M13x1.5)
