Why do you do that is a very valid question. )

I always wanted a G10 with Daimatic and suddenly Holli showed up, too good to slaughter but too cheap to say no.

The differences:

On the left you can see the body of a G10 Daimatic, on the right the blue one which was built for manual transmission.

Above the holder in which the Daimativ water cooler sits, a hand-switched G10 has only 2 small triangles at the same height as the left or right hole above in the picture...

I had to rebuild this bracket...

G10 Daimatic with clutch ;)

The brake and clutch pedal (=manual control) is mounted together on a plate, it is screwed down with the 4 screws which also hold the master brake cylinder.

Engine and gearbox fit easily into the engine compartment

All differences between Daimatic and manual transmission

1. mounting of the gear lever (see photos above) in the interior

2. water cooler, is wider and has 2 connections in the lower "boat" for cooling the gear oil (ATF), the mounting is different because the water cooler is higher and wider.

3. wiring harness differences in the wiring harness behind the dashboard to the right-hand wiring harness running backwards. There are 5 additional lines, responsible for lighting the Daimatic selector lever (2 cables) and 3 cables to ensure that a G10 with Daimatic can only be started in "P" or "N" position, responsible for this is an additional relay which interrupts the power supply to the starter if the selector lever is not set to "P" or "N". These 5 wires require a different main cable set (behind the dashboard) and a completely different right part of the cable harness running back there to the rear lights.

4. cardan shafts the gearing of the cardan shafts are different on the gear side AND the length is different! the long cardan shaft is longer and the short one is shorter.

The speedometer cable is different (shorter), but the longer one can still be used.

5. no clutch pedal ;)
