Does the tube slide up and down with the wick? If so, it'll be to act as a lubricant so it doesn't jam.

Here's a spot of early '60s nostalgia.

Wash the lot with soapy water and leave a window open. Otherwise you will suffocate and die.

Just in case that does not work, please leave the GSP location of your mountain bike with us. Your friends.

There are cleaning sprays for boiler combustion chambers and flues, solvent based and expensive in the main. Is the tube detachable, and what kind of finish does it have? If its just an old metal tube, I'd just stand it in a tray in the garden with a bit of petrol and decoke it using the bryant and may WOOOOOFFFFFF method.
