Default Floscan Leak

A very unproductive weekend. Programming the Skyview has been a nightmare. I have more questions than answer, but that's another story. Anyway I learned I need to power the fuel pump up during Skyview setup as other systems operate from that fuse. After a few seconds of running I noticed a leak coming from the inlet on the Floscan. I disconnected the fuel line and it checked out fine, so I removed the fitting going in to the Floscan and resealed it. Leak gone, well for about an hour of constant running of the pump before it began leaking again.

The leak appears to be coming from around the threads of the inlet fitting going in to the Floscan. I do not see any cracks or issues with either the cube or the fitting. Sealing with Locktite 567 thread sealant.

Anybody else had this issue?
