Re: Best, Easiest standard transmission conversion for 27 T

Easiest and the most sanitary and still look original would be a Ruckstell. Easy to shift and you effectively have 4 speeds forward and 2 reverse. Add a foot throttle and you can shift all 4 with ease. But with any auxiliary, you will need good brakes on the rear axle.
