New pump motor, small leak help

Hi all. I had a noisy pump motor and decided to switch it out. Got a Go-Kit32 for my B855 motor. Replaced the diffuser O-ring and the main flange? O-ring as well as both shaft seals.

After replacement I saw it was slowly leaking and quickly realized I put the seal on the impeller on backwards. When I got the replacement I only replaced it since the other seal didn’t look damaged from my mistake.

Put it all back together and is running so quietly (lovin’ it) but still has a small drop every 8 seconds or so. I tightened the six bolts pretty tight. The diffuser O-ring didn’t seem to fit as snug as I would have thought. And I have two round O-rings left from the go kit that I didn’t see a place for.

Any ideas?

Thanks

It is. Pentair WhisperFlo with a B855 motor. The drip seems to have gone away for now. No drip, very quiet and new gaskets on my Jandy 3 way eliminated any air bubbles
