The fitting I am referring to is a bushing. The bushing that came on my replacement pump wasn't the correct size. I was able to tighten it, but it would not lock the hose into place. I swapped the bushing from my old PS pump into the replacement and I was able to tighten the hose properly. I am betting this is/was your problem because you would be able to make it very tight, but fluid would leak out everywhere.
