That line supplies the head with pressurized oil.is yours leaking at the crimp?
Yes. the crimp is leaking so I purchased a new one from eBay. It's entirely possible it will have the same issue.

I actually have two questions now, the first being if there is a crimp tool that will re-crimp the oil line? Next, I would like to know if I need to wait until I change the oil to swap out the hose or can I change it with the oilk still in?

you can replace the line without changing the oil . Just replace the small amount lost that may be sitting in the line . a hydraulic shop may be able to add crimp , but would rather make you a new line for about 40 bucks .
