Nice, AutoCAD for Apple. At one point they had dropped support for it..

With the oil radiator lines, you have to make sure they are double clamped, one spring and one worm threads, the spring has to be on the outer side of the hose and the worm has to be tightened down quite a lot.

You don't have the exhaust shielded by the oil filter and by the oil cooler lines.
What happens, is as the exhaust heats up, the oil is still cold.
The maximum pressure that a clamped oil hose can hold is about 150 PSI.
You'll have as much as 110 going in there.
With the worm clamp heating up, they tend to loosen up.
There are some out there called "constant torque" that have a coil on them that increases clamping with themperature.
Or go with a brand new set of OEM hoses and clamps. They come with a line on them to show you how deep the hose has to be inserted and both clamps have to be behind the line.
