The reason for the low number is that they were specifically made for the North American market. The same engine was employed in the 880 version which was the 4600. It is most likeley that parts for these engines are hard to find for that reason, not many made and even more unlikeley to find any parts here in the UK. You would probably have to do a bit of research and with other North American memers on here with more knowledge of these models and ex D.B. suppliers you may be lucky and find some bits and pieces still around or even parts from breakers.

Silly question while waiting for the football to start - if say the petrol engine went kaput, would it be possible to transplant in a diesel engine? and if so which one?

On a purely theoretical basis, since I have never seen one. The stroke and total swept volume is the same as a late model 770 motor. I am guessing that the only significant changes would be pistons, cylinder head, AC-delco distributor instead of diesel pump and Zenith carb. Otherwise its an AD3 based engine.
