I can't put my hand on the DL11-W prints at the moment (I know I have
them sowewhere -- several times in fact), but all the notes I can find
say that the standard pin for the LTC L signal on an SPC slot is CD1. CE1
is a testpoint, normally unconnected.
In the early days of the Unibus things like this were not standardised,
so it's quite possible that the KW11-P needs the LTC L signal on CE1. But
I don't think the DL11-W expects it there.
Can you look at the DL11-W card to see what, if anything, is connected to
either of those pins?
