Type D/E couplers


The type E coupler became Standard in March 1932, superseding the earlier Type D. How long would the type D have remained in service? Was there any recommendation or requirement to replace them on pre-1932 cars? Would rebuilds of pre-1932 cars have received type E couplers? Would broken D kunckles be replaced the taller E knuckle?
