I bought a 1979 baja bug has a 2180cc dual carb engine and the transmission has 1000 miles on it.I was driving it and I heard a loud pop and now it won't go in gear just revs up. Anyone have any ideas? I was thinking the hub bearing or maybe the transmission went out but it only has 1000 miles on the rebuild.

Sounds like the trans went out. Lots of stuff in there, so I am not sure what it could be.

Possibly the ring / pinion went out on it.

I would check all the shift linkage and make sure it is all connected. Check all the CV joints.

IF you find nothing there, then it is time to pull the trans and have it looked at.

When you say will not go in gear, do you mean you can not shift the car or that it will not move once you put it into a gear?

Look at the big nut in the center of the rear drum and make sure it is not spinning when the car is in gear and should be moveing, check both sides. if this is the case you spun a drum.
