fuel filter leak

1997 f-350 7.3 psd. I installed a new fuel filter and gasket but fuel bubbles out from around the gasket. I did put clean diesel on gasket when I installed it. At first I hand tightened it but now I have tightened it as much as I dare but still leaks when pressure builds up. I bought filter at Ford so it is supposed to be ok.

That gasket only goes on one way too. Did you put it on upside down maybe?

Sounds like the gasket may be upside down.
