    How did the body of the valve look inside when you removed the cartridge?
    Any chance the cartridge seals got torn when you inserted it?

    You either damaged it, or you did not use the metal washer under the handle so that the screw is pulling the stem outward when you attach the handle.

    Being a Moen it just needs a little tweak. Here is the tool I use.
