Need Help ASAP...fuel problem

Hey guys, I was in the process of putting an electric sending unit for my fuel pressure. Pulled the schrader valve out and put in a T with a 90. Put the sending unit in the T and the schrader valve in the 90 at the end of the T. Finished that much last night in the dark. Drove to church this morning and noticed i had a fuel leak so i checked the tightness on everything and was all tight. Started it to see if i could see fuel and its spraying from underneath where i put the fitting in. Anybody know what my problem is? Phone is 419-438-5688. Need to get fixed ASAP as i have to drive 725 miles home next weekend. Thanks in advanced.

that does not sound good....its cast aluminum if i recall, and that can crack easily. I have heard of the housing cracking before......
