1988 K-5 Blazer transmission

Does any one know if a 460 LE transmission will hold up in a 88 K-5 Blazer? We have replaced the transmission 3 times already. I would also like any suggestions on a replacement transmission.

What type of transmission fluid does a 1988 lebaron with a manual transmission?

Some early vehicles may be equipped with the A-412 manual transaxle. This unit can be identified by locating the position of the starter which is found on the radiator side of the engine compartment. If it becomes necessary to add fluid to this unit, SAE 80W-90 gear lube is recommended.
If your vehicle has the A-460 or A-465 manual transaxle (4- and 5-speed transaxles respectively), the starter will be next to the firewall. When it becomes necessary to add fluid to this unit, AFT+3 is recommended. On the A-520 and A-555 manual transaxles used in 1987-88 models, add SAE 5W-30 SG or SG/CC or the equivalent.
