89 chevy 700r4 trans problem. lock-up?

now that the truck runs, i have one more problem. the 700r4 transmission is making a clicking noise. ussily you hear it at lowidel oracceleration. quiet at cruising.NOTE: i have just removed a fuel injected 4.3, and swaped with a new gm goodwrench carberated 350. is this noise from not having lockup. i have ordered the vacume controled lock up kit. just havent gottin it yet. also what does luckup do?

Transmission fluid is fine
i serviced the trans wile i had it out of the truck.
Thank you
Phil

Look for cracks in the flex platethey will make a ticking sound. When the torque converter is locked up there is no slippage meaning all power is getting to the tranny this is usually achieved in overdrive.
