Would the swap be worth it?

I currently have a 2.3 in my 85 ranger. It is leaking more oil than I can afford to put in it. Would swapping the motor out for a 2.8 be worth it, or should I just rebuild the 2.3? Also, will the 2.8 jutst drop into the same motor mounts, and will the tranny bolt right up?

No the motor mounts are not the same, and
the tranny no
