Stuck mid swap 700r4 for my Powerglide

After finally buying a correct 700r4 I took out the Powerglide and bolted the 700r4 to my 327 today. I have 3 questions I'm stuck on:

1.The 700r4 has 3 wires coming out Blue, Purple, & Pink w/Black Stripe. Can someone tell me which wire goes where? I think only one needs power for the OD to kick in but I don't know which one?

2. Does anyone know how much I need to cut my driveshaft? I saw 3/4" on this site and 2.75" on another? My Powerglide had the 9" tail.

3. Does anyone have any suggestion on how to fabricate the shift linkage. I'm doing this swap on a 'recession' budget and would like to avoid buying a kit. Gas mileage was actually the catalyst for the swap.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
