Bob- You need to remove the hose and CLEAN it super good, inside and out. I
would start with BrakKleen as it cuts oil better than anything Ive used BUT
even starting with gasoline would be OK- just end up with Dawn dish detergent
and then dry it by blowing air thru it Its omportant to get the oil cleaned on
the inside so when the repair is made the oil doesnt bubble up thru the hole
and make it hard to adhere to. I would also wire brush it really well on a
bench grinder/wire brush. Then take it to a reputable shop and they can braze
it . A temporay fix would be a piece of inner tube/ rubber etc and a hose
clamp. BUT you dont want to do that. Its hard to find a shop that makes up the
hose using the origial tubing and get it the same length. If you dont have
headers use a short filter or the 90 degree angled filter adaptor- it works
with some headers but not all. Let us know what you did when its repaired so
others can learn from your problem.
