280SEL 4.5 oil pressure hose

Apparently I crushed the end of the oil pressure sensor line that feeds the gauge in the dash when working on my steering box.

It broke right at the fitting that goes into the back of the head.

Does anyone have a source for this hose? All I can find is vacuum line and that won't work under engine oil pressure.

Does anyone know what the fitting on the gauge looks like. The one on the block is just barbed.

it is just a plastic hose that is heated and pushed on . you could in a emergengy use a piece of QUALITY gas hose of right diameter , a small hose clamp at the barb end will work safely , now at the plastic line , slip as much of hose you can , and use multi clamps . i have done it , and it work . mb makes a high quality hose that fit CIS cars at the fuel pressure accumulator at rear as a vent line for diaphragm .76 on 80 s .
