Grease nipples

Could someone please tell me whether the grease nipples on the front & rear brake actuating shafts are threaded in or a press fit. if threaded what size and thread is used? i suspect it would be easier to obtain new grease nipples than find a grease gun to fit.

I have been looking for some of those "old style" grease fittings, I would gladly pay the postage is someone had a few they could send me, even as many as a couple of dozen.

The problem with turning down the modern type of greaes nipple is that you will lose the non return ball that stops the grease coming back out..John
