Default Yo Eddy - threaded or press in bottom bracket

Hi, it's probably been answered many times on here, but I just can't get the search to find it!

What years did Yo Eddys (or fats in general) switch over to a threaded bottom bracket?

cheers!

I think '91 was the last year that the press in BB's were standard. I have a threaded '92 Yo, but have heard of others with press in bearings on their '92s.
(Other FCs correct me if I'm wrong.)

I have a '91 Monster with Threaded bb, and I have a '91 Yo with pressed bb. All my other Fat's from '92 and up has threaded. My guess is that FCC started using threaded bb's in the late 1991
