TH400 down shift cable?

i have a TH400 with the electronic type down shift, instead of a cable.
i was wondering if there is any way to install a cable type in its place? i'm putting it in a 65 chevy SWB pu, and this type needs some sort of switch that i don't have and have no idea where or how to make it work on my truck.

thanks

I believe that all turbo 400's used the soliniod kick down I've never seen or heard of one with a cable type kick down

That switch is a simple on and off switch such as a brake light switch on a car or motorcycle. The brake light switch on a motorcycle works really well as they are so compact. Lokar makes a real beauty but it does not come cheap.

Lokar makes a really nice switch that bolts to the pan bolts and has a stainless steel cable running up to the carb to operate it.

Cool

I've used a stop light switch off a motorcycle at the carb.

you have to build the carb mount, use a spring and small piece of chain to connect it.

add some wires and it works well.

GM used the switches on the intake or under the dash, depending on application.
