The engine was sold for many other uses including farming, industrial and used in fire trucks that I know of. It was made into the 1990s. Many engine rebuilders probably have part sources not easily found by the public. There are companies that make replacement parts for many out of production engines. Several Chinese companies make diesel parts. As long as the block and heads are ok, it can be rebuilt.
Try your local firehouse and see what engines they are using and where they get rebuilding parts.
