new hunter sprinkler leaks out between body cap and pop-up

I had a leaky hunter sprinkler that leaked between the pop-up and the body cap.
I bought 2 new hunter sprinklers from Sprinkler Warehouse and installed one new one,
but found when installing it, it was leaking out between the body cap and the pop-up.
What went wrong and how can I fix it?

A brand-new head leaking water from around the popped-up part is usually due to dirt in the head, pointing to how it was installed.
