For the fuel line, 5/16" or 8mm is the stuff to use.  I've been hearing conflicting reports on the 
quality of the cloth-braided hose recently on the Bus list, so be aware of that.  I've been using
Gates "not for fuel injection use" 5/16 on FI with no problem, but I'm the paranoid sort who 
replaces hose yearly whether it needs it or not .. cheap insurance.

As far as the shifting, check the vacuum modulator hose on the passenger side.  Make sure 
it's there (!!!), connected and fits snugly.  Maybe put hose clamps on the ends to ensure it
stays put.

You going to bring your new toy by the DDB shop so we can check it out?
