Oil Filter Spin On Adapter

I have a M817 that I just changed the oil and added an oil filter spin-on adapter. It came with no instructions. I put the included gaskets on and torqued it down. I am now leaking oil where the adapter mates to the old filter base. I am guessing I failed to do something simple. Is there an install video or directions anywhere?

What is the adapter base #? There are 2 types.

I did not see a casting anywhere in the adapter. I did see 5T-514 on the item description. I hope this is what is needed.

What rubber of the two did you use? You did remove the old rubber gasket off the engine?
I used the narrow of the two gaskets as it said for the horrizontal nh mount. Was there another gasket other than the ring gasket for the canister? Thank You for helping!!!!

Thank you all for the help. It was as simple as the old gasket was still on the housing. I need to get some worklights 🤓
Well just glad it was something simple. If you still have it the old rubber gasket it is a reuse type on the canister so keep it. Had a friend that need one a long time past and I just happened to have one and gave it to him.
