Fuel line leak from rear passenger head fitting

I replaced the seal yesterday. Now it seems to be leaking from between the 2 nuts(the fuel line compression nut and the head fitting) anybody else have this happen? Probably need a new line with new nuts now?

I had the same leak and just replaced the whole line. I can't remember what rubs back there but it'll rub the line and cause a small pin hole leak in the line.

Alright thanks. I have a butt load of 6-an to npt adapters and 6-an hose from another project laying around, I think I'll just remove the stock stuff from the bowl and head and replace it with some fancy aeroquip stuff. Gotta flow better than the tiny check valves in the head I'd think...And it looks a lot better too.

No more leaks for me! Plus now it fires right up after the wait to start light goes out. Almost zero cranking time...so I'm happy!
