Really difficult-- no. There are tens if not hundreds of thousands of Caterpillar 3126/C7's on the road. C9's, not so much.
And Caterpillar Corp still makes parts for their engines, even for those that are 50+ years old.
So, I would not let the engine be a major decision maker. Certainly less important than floor plan, condition, etc.
