That's not original adaptor but something homemade. By the looks of it the surface isn't flat or straight to make a decent seal.  It looks like the threats of the connector did not went deep enough and it was only holding by 2 or 3 threats. To make it seal you have to tighten it pretty hard. It is only a matter of time before the threats gets stripped. Be glad it happened in your garage and you spotted it on time. Not while driving.

These adaptor for the oil coolers or oil filter relocation are cheap, I would just buy one.

Those are very cheap.

Maybe this will give you more clearance than you have now:



Its a mogal adaptor but now with 2 banjo fittings. You can see how tight this setup is. Only thing you need is 2 AN fittings and 2 banjo fittings.

This also could be a option:

Option 1 would be the cheapest. Option 2 would be a nice solution.

That looks better, more thread to engage.  I would feel inclined to use Dowty seals rather than the fibre ones, they'll probably seal better.
