About what year should they have been purged from inventory?

Over a decade ago with anything legit Bosch. The private shops who knows? I'm sure many keep recycling the same junk.

The story reads like Goldilocks and the 3 bears. Too hard, too soft, just right

2001-2002 production models had a tendency to crack and fill the crankcase

2003-2004 production models had a tendency to ball seat erode and give no start

Somewhere shortly after they were revised again. Most legit Bosch factory remans had new bodies already over a decade ago. Then the VCO nozzles started crapping out with the blue smoke drips.
