What transmissions did the OM605 come with? 717.466 won't fit


I'm building a custom offroad vehicle and bought an OM605 with a mechanical Bosch pump that originally was mated to an automatic. I bought a 717.466 transmission as the bell housing was identical. Turns out the input shaft is too short and won't reach the pilot bearing slot in the flywheel. I've been searching far and wide and can't seem to find any information on what specific gearboxes the OM605 originally came with.

If anybody has any information which ones will fit, please let me know. I'm interested in manual ones mostly. Thanks in advance for any replies.
