well first off, if your convertor sounded like that. i would be willing to bet the trans is full of shrapnel and swapping the T/C will probably last a few days till the pieces of the old one travel around the valve-body and reek havoc.
did you drop the pan and check it out? i mean i suppose you could get lucky, but i wouldn't hold my breath.
and about the noise, since i assume it started after this T/C swap i would bet its something on the flexplate or the flexplate itself out of alignment/contacting the block. but then again it could also be something inside the new T/C getting ready to shell out.
ideally when something fails hard in the transmission the whole thing should be removed and rebuilt along with the coolers/lines being cleaned or replaced.
RUST!! eating away at me more than the rear fender wells
