Fuel leak!!! Help!

Ok, i recently found the thread on "how to R/R the fuel filter." So i got ballsy. . . and did it. It took me a while to figure it out, but i did it on Saturday. And all was good no leaks. So today, i was driving around and stopped at a store to get me a "Red Bull." As i got back in my truck i smelled fuel. Look under and saw a puddle. So i started the truck, and it was pissing so much fuel from the side with 1 input (on the fuel filter). So i drove home real quick to inspect. I assumed i damage the little green clip on the line so i left (in my other car), to go buy another clip. I went to Autozone, Checkers, 2 local repair shops, and the Ford dealership and nobody can help me. They all say i have to replace the whole fuel line that the crooks at Ford tell me costs $322!! $322 instead of paying 50 cents for that plastic green clip. Now, i have heard of guys breaking the clips (on this site), and them just replacing the clip itself. Any ideas, part numbers, websites, or stores that i can find the green clip????? Thanks allot guys!! Any help would be great. Oh yeah, and new clips did NOT come with my new fuel filter. The fuel line is temporarily safety wired pulling the line towards the fuel filter. But it is only a temporary fix. I need to fix it. Thx guys.

In case you need to make a new line you may be able to use these and some standard fuel injection hose.

I'll be out there next month. Well hey if you want, send me a picture of what part you exactly need. I can probably go find it for you and ship it out. Let me know. Unless you can find one over there.

It's cool man. No big deal. It's ok right now. I just wanted to fix it the right way. So i was seeing if anybody could help me out with the part number or something like that. But thank you though.
