BBT News

In a week where there was more political turmoil than VW parts, we managed to get another couple of projects to a “perfect” finish! Political wise I don’t feel the need to write anything, because the low profile political games they played this week (and especially in Belgium) are not worth my words, thoughts or comments. Or as I read in a column the political class of today is only busy with their own profile, not with what really matters… actually I think this lady is right!

In Belgium it’s freezing cold now, the heaters run full charge in the warehouse, our parts and people are more than worth. Next week will be softer again… No white Christmas more than likely for us. Bummer…Sometimes I’m jealous on our friends from up North…:)

But meanwhile we do have a new nice pallet of brand new parts and a couple of back in stocks to write about and warm up our fingertips on our keyboards.

What started as a rough idea in the summer of 2016 is finished now. We made the worm for the early bay window (T2a) steering box.

Made by a highly specialised steering box components manufacturer in Europe, this is really top of the bill! Many of the early bay window steering boxes have worn out worms… well here we offer the solution.

Currently we’re working on a peg roller bearing pen with correct dimensions (there exist several reproductions with all different but none correct dimensions) but our worm functions perfectly with NOS and good used peg roller bearing pens, we tried and tested multiple very intensively!

Our worms come complete, bearing and clips are pre-mounted, for easy assembling.  We sell the oil seals for these steering boxes separately under BBT 1368-210 and 1368-211.

This is a 100% BBT product, quality guaranteed! Beware for cheap & inferior imitations! Making a good worm as it should is not an easy one!

The next new product we already had for longer time, but not in our catalogs yet. So now we offer  the choke element for your PDSIT carburetor.

Solex PDSIT are the original carburetors for your type 3 and 4 engines. Please note this choke element is different for left and right side.

That’s about it for this week news. Just a small message that BBT will be completely shut down next friday. We will be entirely closed between the Christmas and New Year. So if you want another order, before  New Year pls order asap, next week we will ship out all orders we receive, and after that it will be after January 2nd.

Next Friday we will be there with the last BBT News of the year.

We wish you all a very happy winter weekend!
