Yes, but you need to keep track of it. Coming to a stop with it on will stall the engine. Trying to start the engine with the clutch engaged and the tranny in park is real hard on the starter's gears.

in a 700 trans , there is no lock up oil provided till 2nd gearby design. The trans should not stall the engine at a stop if the switch to the solenoid is on.

Some guys stick a check ball in the lock up solenoid snout to have lock up with out electric hook-up. The trans locks up the converter clutch as soon as the shift to second gear happens
