As long as the tubing is stretchy and grips the pot splines (should also grab the selector switch), then it will work.

Linear is slower acting for tone than audio, with more happening at the lower positions but there's not a lot in it to my ears. Maybe things start to happen a couple of numbers earlier, but most of the real action is still in the lower region,

Fitting a lower value tone pot is exactly the same as turning the tone pot down a bit and the tone control starting from there. So with your linear pot, a 100k full up will be like your 250k tone pot set at 4. You may have lost a bit of treble by then, but you may like it sounding a bit darker anyway.
