Quaife differential

Ever heard of a Quaife Differential? The real car freak knows that this thing provides maximum grip in corners. The Quaife differential is so smart that the engine torque is always send to the wheel with the most grip on the road. So the traction of the driven wheels is much better transferred on to the road than with a standard differential. The Quaife differential is similar to a limited slip differential but is much more sophisticated.
The Quaife differential is available in a reconditioned gearbox which you can order in our shop. Do not complain (about the price from 989.95 euros) but race...

Tip for the Burton builder/driver

Sometimes we see cars with a nasty star in the centre of the hood where the gel coat has cracked. The inlet rubber is secured on the carburettor and the plastic airfilter housing with hose clamps. This is perfect, unless the worm wheel is pointed right up. Then the worm wheel could hit the bonnet when it gets closed, there is very little play between bonnet and air filter!
When the clamps of the rubber inlet are placed correctly, the bonnet will remain crack- and star free




A1.4337 Oil line for 2CV6 / A1.4340 Oil line for Visa
The availability of the oil line for the 2CV6 en 2 cylinder Visa has been a problem for years. Pristine and original parts become very rare, and imitation-parts are notoriously hard to fit. Time to get in action! We made both the 2CV and Visa oil line. By using a copper/nickel-alloy for material, and putting a lot of effort into making sure the fitment is right, we believe that we’ve made these oil lines better than they ever were. Price start at click here to order a oil line for a 2CV, click here to order for Visa.

On long trips it’s comfortable to have the engine’s sounds muffled. Bonnet insulation can help a great deal with this. Our new bonnet insulation is self-adhesive, so easy to fit.

A1.4360 Fan pulley
The plastic ventilator is fixed onto a metal pulley, which also drives the alternator. The pulley itself is fixed on the crankshaft. There were a lot of different qualities and versions available, none of which really pleased us. We’ve developed a pulley that will fit any 2CV4 and 2CV6. This is for sale for € 44,99

A1.3904 Wheel bearing 2CV
The development department of Burton Car Company focused its attention on the 2CV wheel bearing. We’ve come up with a wheel bearing that is almost equal to the known SKF wheel bearing concerning quality, but costs only half of the SKF bearing. The most important innovation is that this bearing will resist both upwards en sideways loads. This product is available for just € 19,75

A1.5337 Pushrod tube seal
It can be very frustrating when a pushrod tube seal start to leak. But the amount of work that goes into changing one is usually what gets you. Through great differences in temperature and under influence of oil, the rubber seal will harden and start leaking quickly. Burton 2CV Parts decided to replicate an original 2CV6 pushrod tube seal with a new material. We choose Viton, because it shares properties with the original rubber, yet is known in car- and airplane manufacturing for is excellent heat- and chemical resistance. Solvents and fuels won’t deteriorate Viton. Replace your leaking seals with ones and head for a leak free future. The pushrod tube seals are € 7,50 a piece. Order right away? Click here

The front indicators of the 2CV are being held by a bracket. These small bracket have a tendency to rust. We supply the brackets in stainless steel. They cost € 7,95 each.

A1.1106 Gasket fuel pump fat
Situated between the engine and the fuel pump of a 2CV is a fat plastic gasket. In most cases, this gasket can be reused. When the gasket is cracked, it is better to be replaced as oil could get out of the engine. For long, new gaskets where nowhere to be found. Now Burton Car Company sells them for € 7,50.

A1.1115 Fuel filter plastic

A plastic fuel filter is easily inserted in rubber fuel pipe. It prevents zand and other stuff to get from the tank to the carburettor. Make sure to put the filter before the fuel pump.
