I would say you have a cracked fuel filter housing. Pull the housing off the truck. Plug all the holes but one. Insert air here. Regulate to about 70PSI and you will find your leak.

Good idea there nick. Didn't see that just did the o-rings. If the valve is leaking you will find it the way I mentioned. It's just a little more work. Not tons but a little.

Man, I was about to ask you how tight did you tighten it. It plastic, but has metal inserts, and needs to be hand tight other wise you risk flexing or even damaging the assembly.
