Looking at the photo, it's hard to tell if there is any contact between the core motor line and the one behind it that looks like it goes to the reservoir.... is it touching? That could possibly tilt the end of the core motor line slightly, so you are trying to torque it down when it isn't sitting flush on the washers. Not saying I think that's what is wrong, as I suspect it's a low likelihood. Something to check, before you chuck the line.

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "
