Divertor valve on main pump suction for spa and pool leaks when in the "pool" position.  Holds fine in the spa position.  Valve O-rings seal fine, "paddle" gasket looks good too.  Could this be a valve body issue, or should I replace the diverter paddle?

It's more than likely the valve diverter. The price difference between the diverter and the complete valve is minimal. I would buy a complete valve and then try the diverter. If the new diverter doesn't work, the new body can be installed.
