96 psd fuel leak at 90 going into block?

Can anyone give me info on this, under the hood there are eight braided fuel lines, 1 going to each cylinder. the one going the the front drivers side has a 90 degree fitting before it goes into the block. there is a really bad leak right at that connection, it was loose and then i tightened it but it got worse. are there orings inside that could be cut or should i just tighten it more? any info would help, im stuck at work.

Yup I am confused. You said this was a 96 Power Stoke? They do not have individual fuel lines. Sounds like you are talking about the return lines on an older idi? Got a picture?JJ

yeah there arent all individual fuel lines on a powerstroke, I thought when you were talking about your problem before you were talking about the fittings on the two fuel lines coming off the FPR?

i was all wrong

ok so i was dead wrong, i actually got in there and had a good look at it. the leak was a blow fuel line that goes from the fpr to the front right drivers head.
its about and eight inch line that had a blowout right in the middle.i was able to fix it with a coupling and gear clamps to get it home. half way home another line blew. it was the fuel line that goes to the other side at the back. it got towed from there. i shimmed the fpr with a ball bearing a week ago, it worked fine until now. if it only raised the fuel pressure to 70 - 80 psi why all the line breaks all of the sudden. should i just remove the shim
