Production Dates of Bach Flugelhorns

Hi, I have a Bach 165 flugelhorn, and I'm trying to find a mouthpiece to help it play more in tune (love the sound).

As part of my research, I'd like to know what years the Bach 182 flugelhorn and the Bach 183 flugelhorn began production.

The reason I need to know the information above are as follows:

I just purchased a "short shank" Bach Corp 6C FL flugelhorn mouthpiece manufactured between 1965-1969 (awaiting shipment).

I'd like to know if this mouthpiece was manufactured specifically for the Bach 165 or 182, and not the Bach 183 (which, if my theory is correct, wouldn't have existed at the time the aforementioned mouthpiece was manufactured).

I've used the "standard" Bach 6C FL mouthpiece on my instrument, and the intonation is quite poor.
