O-rings gone bad for second time in 2months?!?

I know most people have trouble with the o-rings going out on the hpop... or at least i think this is it again because oil is pooling on the top of the motor and making its way down to look like the rear main seal is leaking....but mine has went out twice in the last 2 months what can i do to keep it from doing this would the high pressure oil line crossover hose help?

2003 F-350 CC LB BAMF EDITION
Built 04.5 CTD with a Giant set of twins for power

2008 F-350 CC SB...tow rig for the Fummins

repaeat failures are usually due to over torquing the fittings
