Thermostat housing leak question, HELP

Hi, I am new here and I hope someone can help me. I had the thermostat leak in my 02 svt so I went and replaced it with new parts from Steve at Tousley ford. It fixed the leak against the block but it is now leaking at the temp sensor. I have had it out twice now and I cannot stop it from leaking. This new type sensor has a o-ring for sealing, it looks good to me but it is not doing its job in sealing. Has anyone else had this problem, if so how did you fit it.

I am afraid to tighten it to much in fear I might crack the housing, it There a torque spec for this sensor? I am using the good and tight method.

I called Steve at Tousley Ford and told him about my problem and he is sending me out a new seņor to try.

Ps: the last time I had it out I also put pipe thread sealant on the threads hoping it would help but still no luck.

Thank you for all your help.
