Removed torque converter and replaced it with another one from an AW70. Filled it up and took about 5 liters, checked I have pressure in the cooler lines, still wont engage D, R, 2 or 1.

Dipstick showed it as being at the correct level while running, so either I just gotta squeeze in more oil still, or AW70 torque converter doesn't work with an AW71?

Figured out the issue with the 240, this is the theory anyway, and it makes the most sense.

The torque converter was bad from the start. That's why, when the old trans "died", it was shuddering at times, and slipping. Filled up the trans fluid and still no drive.

Replaced the trans, put the old torque converter in, filled up the oil, still no drive. The transmission wasn't ****ed, the torque converter was.

This also explains why the torque converter is pumping oil but delivers no drive!

I remember there being a pair of notches/ears on torque converters and that they aren't always compatible between transmissions. If the TC you installed had a mmm shaft kind of with female ears, it might not engage the matching ears inside the transmission. Maybe it doesn't reach or maybe it doesn't have notches the right size. Did you compare the two TCs?
