Did you read the instructions that came with the seal and make sure you installed it in the correct direction.

If you installed the seal backwards, (with lip facing wrong way), it will leak.

The push-nut goes on with cupped side pointed out, once installed in correct direction and in correct place, (at the last notch in the shaft down by the seal), the clip holds the drain shaft in the correct position so the flapper seals are lined up in the pump correctly.  Once the push-nut is off the shaft and flapper can be pushed further into the pump and it will bind and lock up, when it is pulled back out to the correct position where the push-nut holds it, it should operate smoothly and the flapper seals should line up correctly inside the pump.
