There is a rubber "o" ring that goes on the lid for the housing check for that and make sure you snug the lid down good.:Thumbup:

I made sure the o-ring was around the filter and the beveled seal was seated properly

you could have overtightend it and cracked the lid but I bet you didn't get the o-ring in right or somethig. pull it off and check it all out.

I believe i did. Now tell if I am wrong the o-ring goes around the filter and the beveled gasket sits on the top of the housing?

that should be it, if your working on a superduty truck. OBS trucks only have one. but the small oring goes arount the outside of the filter and the beval seal gose ontop the filterbase. there may be something wrong with your lid I would try another filter and lid.
