I don't have a M787 card. This system arrived with two M7800's and a M7228. 
No KW11-L. It came with the M7228 (KW11-P). From what I can tell, the M7228 
can provide several different time clocks, one of which is LTC based as an 
option if you run an additional wire, but not at the normal address for the 
LTC.

I want to see first if the power supply is generating a LTC L signal, and 
then see where it goes. Right now I'm trying to just find the signal. It 
would obviously go to slot 1C somewhere for the M787. But I can't seem to 
figure out if it was by default also provided to a pin in the 3 unibus slots 
built in to the system unit in order for the DL11-W to take advantage of.
