Default Perlick Faucet Problem?

I took one of my Perlick faucets apart to clean. Upon reassembly, the faucet has a slow drip. I tightened up the top piece that the threaded piece for the tap handle goes into. It still drips. I don't want to over tighten that piece that I already tightened. Is that my problem? Any other suggestions?

Sounds like you put the seal in backwards. The round part that actually makes the seal (and connects to the tap handle) has a specific orientation. If you put it in backwards it will not be able to make a full seal. Try taking it apart and flipping it around, you should be able to make a good seal after that.

You could also try putting a little bit of keg lube on the seals.
