Engine Going Out in Astro What Would You Do?

Here's the deal, I have a 1986 Astro Automatic and it has the 4.3 L. It's not going to run much longer. Here's my opions......
A. Rebuilt the 4.3 L motor
B. Put a used one in
C. Put a 350 V8 that I have just sitting in the garage that has a fresh rebuilt?

What other year 4.3's would work without the wire harness hassle?

I would like to get pretty good gas mileage since I travel a lot.

Let me know your thoughts, Thanks

I would do one of two things, first choice would be to fix oil leak if not to big a job eg. not the main seal. if the price was to high I'd get rid of it and buy another one.
