I would first pull it apart and check the brass fitting for any scratches or debris then look at the flare on the end of the fuel line for any problems and go from there.

Thanks,, brass is new(from a rebuild kit), and the flare end looks good. Since reattaching, the leak improved, but nonethe less still there.
