[volt-nuts] Fluke 731B replacement

I am planning on building an equivalent Fluke 731B transfer Standard using a VRE310 10V Precision reference and LTC5400 Quad resistor as a precision 10:1 divider, plus ancillary circuits. However, before starting the detailed design I modeled the Fluke 731B circuit in LTSpice. The 1V, 1.018V and 1.019V outputs are fine but the 0 to 999uV delta E adjustment circuit for the delta V, 1.018 + delta E and 1.019 + delta E outputs does not work per the circuit modeled from the schematic. I have double and triple checked my LTSpice schematic per the Fluke 731B schematic but I can't see any difference. Maybe I am just too close to the forest to see the trees.
Note: The Fluke 731B schematic from the manula I have does not show the value of the delta E adjustment pot but the parts list shows a value of 5K ohms.
Does anyone have any ideas? I can forward the LTSpice schematic I am using to anyone that might be interested, just send me your e-mail address.
