Default Time For A New Engine?

So after taking the dash apart to check solder points and manually testing oil pressure on my '87 Sedan, I believe the engine has no oil pressure. Oil light flickers and blinks whenever she's running, sometimes it turns off for a little bit but then comes back on. Engine isn't knocking yet so I'm gonna try replacing the sending unit and running a thicker oil, maybe 20w-40.

Anyway, if the engine is indeed on it's way out, would it be possible for me to swap in a 2.7l motor used in the coupes of the same generation? I'm guessing there are some differences, might just go with another 2.5l. Lots of stuff to be thinking about, still trying to decide what to do with her.

Lemme know what you guys think and if you have any ideas whatsoever!

Should be doable. I have the motor from my coupe available.
