The TT unit on my 56 Carib was of the cone type and it's a very late car, assembled just 2 weeks before shutdown. FWIW, the unit was very badly worn, beat to heck really, as were the pinion and carrier bearings so I replaced the entire carrier with an NOS non-TT unit with new ring and pinion gears in 3.31/1. I don't take the car out in snow and ice so doing w/o the TT is really of no consequence.

It's probably overkill but the EP gear oil is inexpensive so I drain and change every 5-6 years.
