I was in the UK last fall and toured through an interesting set of shops. The old RAF Upwood base has been purchased by Turbine Motor Works, LLC, and each huge hanger converted to distinct overhaul facilities.
One of these shops still supports the JT3, and the TF33. (The owner has his own private Boeing 707, with TF33 engines.)

National Aircraft in Tucson, Arizona has about ten J57 units for sale too. Some still in cans, some not, and some lying on the desert floor. Selling price varies accordingly.
If you are a Pratt brat, and simply must have an engine for yourself, give 'ol Ben a call. (Ben is wanting to retire and sell his place. When the engines are gone, they are gone for good.)
