tried to fire up the car today...oil leak!

I tried to fire up my car for the first time since my quicktime install and the oil feed line is leaking bad! Its leaking right out the end of the crimp where it connects to the stainless line. Its like they got a bad crimp or something? Anyone have have an idea if this is fixable of if i should have to buy a whole new hose?
thanks,
ty

FWIW,I would either make your own(like i did)or buy one from somewhere.I wouldnt bother trying to get another line from QT,cause it would take 6 mos.

Yes, each "-x" number indicates 16th of an inch.

I'm not sure.Dont think so.I picked up some -an fittings at a speed shop(-4)with pipe threads where it goes into turbo and oil supply.I know summit or jegs sells some pre-fabbed lines in many sizes.Good luck,ive had to order clamps,make my own lines,etc.Never got any of that stuff.
