tub spout diverter leaking

Originally the diverter was leaking very badly with poor shower pressure.
I have replace the diverter carefully following directions. There is a tremendous improvement with one issue remaining.
On the bottom of the spout where the set screw cutout is located I still have leakage. It is more than just a drip here and there and is actually a steady small stream. I rechecked everything but no luck.
Any plain speak assistance would be greatly appreciated.

It sounds like the spout is not sealing onto the pipe. You may have damaged the seal or O ring during installation.
