Forget the converting. Had a selespeed 147 years and years ago, never a hitch but probably not the most reliable type of gearbox.

There are a number of threads from forum users looking to convert a Selespeed to Manual - the main conclusion seems to be that it can be done but there is a lot of work and bits required - you have a doner car so bits should not be a problem.

If your issue is with Selespeed then in the main they are not a problem if maintained.....but that is true of most cars....
