I cut off the steel crimp that held the rubber line on each end with a cut off wheel on a die grinder.
A cut off wheel on a dremel tool would work just as well too, just take a little longer.

Dont cut so deep through the rubber hose under the crimp that you cut into the single smooth barb on the steel line from the scavenge pump and fitting that screws into the oil tank.
The last little bit of the crimp is impossible to reach with the cutoff wheel so you take needle nose pliers or vise grips and peel the rest till the last little bit breaks and the crimp bends and peels off the hose.

Then I put the new 7/16" hose on the origonal fittings with a hose clamp.
There is no oil pressure there because there is no resistance to flow other than the filter your installing and thats not much. It's just a slow flow of hot oil going back into the oil tank.

I used 7/16 non fuel injection fuel line because it's inexpensive and works perfectly fine for this application.
