These are cast aluminum on my 68 and I think for yours. Personally I fill the tank with the city support fitting so I can filter it. I'll use the tube for those situations where I have to fill from water tanks. The caps are hard to come by and I suspect the tubes are as well.

fresh water fill tube - 63 Globetrotter

Here is a pix of what is on my 63 Globetrotter

The "tube" is a threaded copper pipe and the cap is brass (I think). The bezel is cast aluminum. The stem is like a tire stem so you can pressurize the tank externally with a tire pump.

I certainly hope those are water spots and not corrosion on your picture. My fill tube looks just like yours without all of the water spots
