Yes, but many of them are actually made by GMB. GMB is a large,
multinational corporation, but I drive past their headquarters on my way to
work. The grease nipple is not only "as original", but it's the correct
extended nipple ... IMO these are good quality reproductions of the original
part. They fit my TR3A and Stag perfectly, and I had no qualms about
installing them, even though they were made in Japan. No problems as yet
either, although I've only got a few thousand miles on them.
