1962 chevy pickup - Oil leak between canister and block?

I have been helping my grandfather get his dad's (my great grandfather) 1962 chevy c10 6 cylinder running. We have gotten it going, but there is a leak in the hose that goes from the oil filter/canister to the block. I can't seem to find a replacement hose for this anywhere. any ideas? is there very much pressure in this hose?
is there an adapter for this model of engine/truck to use a newer style spin-on filter?

Thanks,
Shad

Think about it, The pressure in the hose is equal to your oil pressure. I believe a grease gun hose is the same thread and oil resistant and can hold a lot more pressure than the approximate 35 PSI that your engine should have. Hope this helps.

This might help your oil problem!!

Hey, There is a filter relocator kit at Summitracing.com that would solve your problem. I would definetly recommend summit to any aspiring engine builders and I would definetly go there if i were you for your preformance parts if you decide to biuld a quality high power engine OK.

thanks,
