  As stated, make sure it's not the return lines.  It can easily be the 
lines though.  Since it's a tapered cone, it USUALLY isn't the problem in 
itself.  What I've seen is the back/upper side of that taper (on the line) 
gets mashed and splayed out by many or overtightening cycles of 
reinstalling the lines.  Kind of mashes out like the brim of a hat and there 
should only be a cone with the nut capping it.  Mine all had such nice 
brims on them that they looked normal that way.  Picked up a good 
used set of lines and fixed the problem.  :)
  I first tried grinding the brim off.  It helped but things were smooshed 
around enough that it still didn't make a good seal and leaked, but less.
