I replaced the fuel filter on my powerstroke just like before snug after it touches the housing it was leaking all arond the seal, so I tightened it up aproxximateley 3/8to 1/2 turn more then it shot 2 streams, obvisouly the seal kinked, pulled it lose put the seal on cap straight screwed down inspecting, that it was uniform as I tightned it, started it seeping all around seal. Rubbed a fresh coat of diesiel on seal inspected by part # and physical size of filter and seal, cleaned all areas that would touch and felt for any scratches or mars in the housing, seal or cap, everythings in order but it is still leaking around the seal. Any ideas would be greatly apprecieated
have the same problem?
