You are very welcome.
One thing about the return line is that it is the high pressure line. It has around 45+ PSI at least and will leak and/or burst the easiest. If your repair was a shortcut of any kind, you definately wnat to repair it correctly. When you install o-rings, to keep them from pinching use a little silicone spray lubricatn or even motor oil in a pinch, but very little. Also use teflon thread sealant on any threaded fittings. You should go back and do that or it may not leak. However, removing the fitting at a later time may be difficult as the fuel fittings are a soft metal. They do not take much to knock the corners of the hex head.
The clip will be weakened now that it has been bent. You don't want to end up having it blow off on the hgihway and have it get on a hot motor or worse the alternator and start a engine fire. Fuel injection pumps can crank out massive volumes of fuel very quickly.
I am glad you found the leak though, you may just want to do a few preventative tweeks to it.
