Hey if it works Phil.
Kinda of neat idea really.
Just need a GM Shematic of the 4L80E trans to figure out the solenoid wiring.

One Koolest Shifters ever made was installed in those 1978-87 G body Hurst Olds with the doggish 307 ci V8 Oldsmobile Engine.
HURST LIGHTING RODS.
Be nice to setup Grumpy with one in his C4 BBC 4L80E DANA60 4-LINK.
He is Old School Too.
Mount lever action micro switches.
Activate the Solenoid A & Solenoid B in his 4L80E.
Mount a Rheostat on console for controlling Pressure control solenoud Line Pressure.
Or connect to gas pedal with a Bell crank lever arm.
Toggle switch for TCC Lockup.
Hurst Lightning Rods will fit in C4 Auto Console.
Its been done 2 times in the past 6-7 years back.

i didnt realize that those were microswitches, i thought it was something like the lenco setup ive seen a couple of those cars here, one just a couple weeks ago. anemic motors but very cool cars nonetheless

No Phil. No micro switches in there.
Add them with custom made machined brackets.

Sometimes on Ebay. Almost bought a set in the past.
Went over $750 the Hurst Lightning Rod Shifter setup. I passed.

Yes.
You still need the Manual Slide Shuttle valve in the 4L80E.
The Gear Train is identical to Turbo 400.
Its likely not been done yet.
Hurst sold a very limited universal Lightning Rod Setup too.
Made for 3-speed Auto Turbo 400 & TH350.
RARE TOO TODAY.. Aluminum Handle & Steel Chrome plated versions I have seen on Ebay.
