Spoke Length--French wheel

I'm rebuilding a rear wheel for a Mercier 300. Unfortunately the spokes are long gone and the 4th edition of Sutherland's doesn't have any data or correction factor for an AVA tubular rim.

It has a 67 mm Normandy hub, 36 hole, 5 speed freewheel. I was planning on lacing 3X.

I purchased 305 Robergel's for it but they seem way too long. That's what's on the front.

Without the rim info is there any way to correctly size the spokes for the rim?

Thanks,

Kurt

I just looked at Musson's guide. Looks like I have everything to get it.

Good guide to wheel building.
