I assumed they were all the same 55-67 except the shift rod tube.

60' - hence the choke cable and reserve cable tube

I'll try and squeeze under my '67 today and measure up the heater control tubes , throttle tube, and the clutch tube. No heater tube to measure as it was replaced with exhaust pipe.

Did anybody ever find this out? I also need it. I'm deployed and trying to gather parts for a project waiting for me at home. Everything was cut out of the cargo floor, including the tubes Crying or Very sad

there is no tube for the reserve or choke cable.
They just come in sheaths, which are tied to the bus with metal cable tabs.

I have some chunks of the tubes cut from my 65 saved. The accelerator, heater, and another mystery tube (choke?) are 8mm outside, 5mm inside. The emergency brake tubes are 12mm outside, 10mm inside. The clutch tube for the most part was MIA when I got it, but the holes in the chassis suggest 12mm also.
