Not sure where you are with shower issue, but thought I'd share thread from a long time ago regarding our shower valve.. They are obscure, prone to leak or clog and need adjusting to work.. If your shower spray head is clear and outlet angled fitting is OK, then valve or adjustment probably the problem.. Easier to work with city water pressure available, but here is link to find replacement unit and adjust, if needed:
Many thanks for that link. I've determined my problem isn't the diverter. I have found two issues:
1. The little elbow where the shower hose connects was clogged. I solved that with a section of coat hanger.
2. The shower hose has a six-sided plastic piece on the end. This piece does not mate to the six-sided plastic piece down in the elbow. So that connection point cannot seal off to allow water to flow into the hose.
Now to research this.
