The cartridge is defective, or you damaged the valve body.

I figured out the problem. it was with the Cartridge. The Moen 1222 manufacture cartridge - look at end of it is NOT a solid piece. The Lowes brand, Dante, the end is solid (no hole in the center). Thats the way my old cartridge was even in pieces I figured it out. Shower does not leak now.
