Smile HELPP!!!Fluke 8000A question

Bought a Fluke 8000A bench multimeter on EBAY. The unit is brand new (packed in shielded wrapping) and was one of a number the seller had to sell.
It had been professionally modified for the user and the modification was inclusion of a female(gold plated) plug on the rear of the unit. This plug interrupts the inputs for the test lead inputs. I surmise they were going to incorporate this unit into another piece of equipment for specific measurements.

The unit came without the plastic case.The problem is the unit has a number of contacts on the rear of the main circuit board which fit into somehting on the case itself ,shorting these contacts so the device can work. No case ..No work!

I need to know the physical layout of that shorting plug to make this thing work.

Shot in the dark on this ..but who knows..

Can you help???

Thanks for considering.

Did you contact FLuke for documentation on the unit?

I think I have found a source for documentation. Unfortunately manufacturers are in the game to make money and generally not very free with info. I was in that situation and am familiar with the manuals/spare parts thing. I would rather not spend a great deal on this .

Thought someone might be familiar with details surrounding my problem .I'll get it worked out .
