Can't find a power steering pressure line that will seal

Hi everyone. I have a 1997 F-250 that was built in December of 1997. The other day the pressure line blew off of the power steering pump. I have tried both pressure lines for the newer and older built 97's but I can't keep it from leaking at the pump. It looks as if the fitting that goes into the pump on the new line is about a thread too long because it will not seat and just continues to leak. I even measured the length with a digital dial caliper and it confirmed that it is slightly longer than the old one. Has anyone else had an issue with this? By the way the powersteering pump is a cheap reman from Autozone but I never had an issue with leaks until now.

Charlie that truck should be new enough that you could order from sunrise ford and cut out the aftermarket stuff
and have it guaranteed to fit with your vin plus 20-40 % less than most dealers and free ship on most items

Changed both lines when I replaced the steering gear on my 97. got them from AZ. Used the same lines again when I changed it a second time (first gear was junk) .

Just a thought. You said at the pump. Is the Teflon seal from the old hose or pieces of it stuck in the pump threads? Does the new hose have the Teflon seal on it already? How tight are you tightening it?
