General selespeed and gearbox question

Hi guys I was wondering about the following. Is the selespeed system just an automated version of a manual gearshift with the same gearbox or is it totally different ? In other words would it be possible to convert a selespeed to a manual gearbox if you really had to. And finally do you also cheack the gearbox oil on a selespeed like a manual's gearbox (not talking about the separate oil resevoir for the selespeed hydraulics).

Don't even think about converting. It can be done, but buying another car would be a lot easier!

Gear oil level, exactly the same as a manual.

Re: General selespeed and gearbox question

its manual gearbox with an electro/hydraulic system to change the gears.

Its NOT an automatic as in the normal convention & nor is it a sequential box ..... its still a H pattern box
