FAA data for failures of different engine types from the beginning of data collection till modern times.

I would think every time an engine was shut down in flight, a report is made to FAA? If not then for sure after a crash.

Also would there be old military or national guard data on such?

If any such data exists, I'm not aware of it.
An engine can fail in flight, cause a forced landing, and nothing has to be reported as long as there are no injuries or damage and the flight is not for hire.

The NTSB will be more helpful as they are the ones that actually conduct the investigations on accidents, however, they investigate aircraft accidents, not specifically engines even though the engine may be a root cause.

Now, the AOPA does have a database which I think you'll find useful, but you'll have to do a lot of extrapolation of data.

Typical of all search engines, I searched a certain make, and hundreds of non related makes show up.
