Driven diesel fuel system fuel leak

I have a 2003 7.3 that I put a driven diesel fuel system on a few months ago.. I am still running the factory fuel pump for now and am using their post pump filter with a wix filter/separator.. I have had a slow leak that I cannot stop coming from the remote filter head.. The fittings going into the filter head are standard npt pipe thread which I have used several different thread sealants on and they still leak... I will post up the different sealants I used when I get home, I need to fix this ASAP my boss is getting his lot re paved this week and told me I won't have a job if I stain the new lot lol
Here is a pic of my set up
