installed riffraff hpx line. driver side oil leak.

Hey all I installed a riffraff hpx hard line this past weekend. The driver side is leaking oil pretty bad. Found a nice puddle underneath my truck. I torqued them correctly. So what gives bad o ring? Tried to snug it down but its not loose. It seems like its coming out the top.

Once you torque the fitting into the head, you have to tighten the line onto the fitting until you get a good seal.

Pulled it off found grooves along the wall. Riffraff is going to swap it out for me.
