If the leak is coming from the fitting where it mates to the caliper, you may not have threaded it properly or perhaps not snugged it down completely. You may need to remove the fitting and examine the threads. If there buggered up, you'll probably want a new piston as metal filings may be inside the caliper piston (bad ju ju).
