leakin fuel pipe

'88 f250 7.3. Guy's I got a problem. Have fuel leaking, really bad, through the nut that connects fuel pipe to the injector pump. I've had the line off but don't have any idea what a good connection should look like. It all looks good to me. But once it started leaking, it just got progressevely worse till that cylinder is effectively dead. What the heck am I looking at here.
Thanks for any help. Soon to please

Took said fuel line to Bearing Services in Shreveport, La. hoping to have the line remade. Man there told me I'de have to get it through Ford. He inspected the flared boss at the end of the line and found a crack behind it. He soldered it, and so far so good! Not sure about how well that soldered crack is going to hold up, so I will be ordering a replacement line from Ford.

Thought this might be of some help to someone down the road. Truck is running REAL good right now.
