1AD (that's how Armored Division is abbreviated) started transitioning to M1A1s in January 1987.  3ID started drawing theirs in 1987 as well.  For sure all of 1AD and 3ID were equipped with M1A1s by the end of 1987.

That would fit thinking about it, they seemed to be using M1's in news coverage of Exercise Lionheart, which would have been September to October 1984.
