Someone already cut the crimp off the fitting for you.
I've replaced low pressure oil hoses like that on my own car with earls or aeroquip 16AN stainless braided hose.

Wrap the hose tight with masking tape and cut it off nice and straight with a death wheel on a die grinder so the braided end stays together and is cut off straight and clean.

Slide on one of these T-bolt clamps whichever one fits the hose you use.

Push the hose on the barbed fitting, unwrap the tape, slide the clamp over to the cut end so the sharp edges are just covered flush, tighten T-bolt clamps and it won't come loose or leak and it looks nice.

Any high temp 7/8" ID oil hose would work there.
