If this is one of the coolant hoses to the water pump I'd find out how much coolant you lost before restarting anything even after replacement. Good time to see age of all other hoses.

So did you run out of coolant and overheat the Detroit? If so you could have damaged the seals and antifreeze will be in the oil. Detroit's do not take well to overheating and often require a rebuild afterward.

oil still looks good going to have a mechanic look at it probably go ahead and change the oil anyway but I have to get towed to have radiator hose replaced since I can't replace it myself about a 1-inch slot to get the hose into

I'm sure you cam do it yourself may have to take something off first. Take a picture and post it so we can help more.

Might be a good idea to take a sample and get an analysis done on it. Lots that you cant tell from looking...
