Now THAT makes sense. I had backed the knurled collar nut on the faucet lever off a quarter turn so that the taphandle would snug up square with the front of the kegerator. The Perl is likely misaligned with the front seal o-ring.Critically important to have the "Perl" line up properly with the spout O-ring. It is easy to mis-adjust the faucet lever arm such that the "Perl" is too high or too low to hit the O-ring perfectly. This alignment can be visualized through the spout...
Is there an easy way to determine if the alignment is too high or too low? The leak is significantly less that now than before it was disassembled, so I assume my "eyeball alignment" during reassembly is closer to correct alignment.
I can't believe this didn't occur to me before. Thanks for pointing it up.
