Engine out to seal leaks... should I just buy an L-block and rebuild and install it instead? 200

I'm working on my 1990 245 getting rust restored, painted and all leaks fixed

I've pulled the tranny for said job and I'm about to pull the engine

I read somewhere that the L-block B230 engines were better - should I try to find one of those while the rust is getting repaired and rebuild it or should I just pull my K-block and rebuild it for reinstallation?

I'm hoping to drive this to my grave and I'm about to turn 61

any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
