[Spridgets] Leaky oil pressure hose

I received my nicely rebuilt oil pressure/temperature gauge from Mo-Ma and
installed it in the car, only to find the old rubber hose that connects the
two pieces of metal tubing for the oil pressure is cracked and leaking.  I
need the car operational Saturday morning, so there isn't time to order a new
part.  My previous attempts to find a 1/8" OD hose that can take 80 psi at a
local hardware store and AutoZone were fruitless.  Suggestions?  How much
pressure can clear plastic tubing stand?
