transmission swap questions

Will a 89 4cyl trans. fit on a 83 302 motor?
What do I have to do to fit the 302's standard shift into the 89 autoMatic?

First off I know that the 4cyl transmission won't be very strong behind the v8... It may be fine with a stock v8 but as soon as you start pushing some power through it don't expect it to last haha
