I always liked the looks of the FROG 2.49 BB diesel. I understand that the weak point is damage to the crankcase. Especially when that huge front bearing hits.
One I bought new in mid fifties (left), one from online auction (top), one from GSCB club sales (R) ...

I have a couple of these and like the look of them. They are also exceptionally easy starters.

As in the above review, they do get hot - very hot for a diesel but this never affected running and made it much easier for a restart.

I never came across any crankcase problems because of the bearing but I do know that a gummed up one is difficult to dismantle.

I was once given one of these because "the spring starter" was broken. The owner didn't realise that it didn't have a spring starter and that was the dust cover for the bearing he was looking at!
