Water STILL coming out of shower head and tub spout - have replaced diverter

I have an Eljer three-handle set up in my tub. Water is coming out of the shower head and tub spout. Big deal - replace the diverter and be done with it. Well, I replaced the diverter and the hot/cold handles. Water is still coming out of both the shower head and the faucet.

Outside of needing to repipe this old setup, could this be a more simple fix of replacing the tub spout and/or shower head? Both are a few years old.

Any help is appreciated.

Did you change the valve seats? This is all I can think of if the valve stems are new.
You need a seat wrench. Put a little pipe dope on the new seat threads.
