The American Flyer models had a replacable liner tube; a length of T20 with punch holes to lock it in place. I don't recall if the company sold replacement liners.
The series "reusable wadding" was a red plastic plug that slid loosely along the liner. I don't recall the attachement details. An image of the instructions would be revealing.

Here's the instructions from
