    The four 1991's (a Yo, Wicked, and two Monsters) I've had were all press-in. The 1992 Yo Eddy I had was threaded. I think I remember reading a thread about a late 1991 with a threaded shell, but don't quote me.

    I had a 91 Yo some years back that had a threaded BB.

    Thanks guys. I appreciate the replies. I got an email from Rody who explained that he has seen threaded and non-threaded shells in different years and there was not really a true date for the switch over, but it is sounding like possibly 1992 and later years stood a good chance of having a threaded BB.

    That makes sense. Another way to put it would be, I've never seen a press-in that was 1992 or later. Anyone?

    Rody stated that he actually had a 1995 Yo come through that was press in, if you can believe that. He said, that it was probably due to some old shells laying around that got used?

    Yikes. I'd be pissed if I bought a 1995 and it turned out to be press-in....it's such a hassle finding parts for them.
