From memory the only components that require a differently wired circuit are the opamp and the pre regulator, everything else shares exactly the same pin out, the only thing necessary is reversing the polarity on the diodes/caps/voltage reference.
Yes, I checked the orientation of all components. I don't see any mistakes.

The manual about the testing procedure (with pre-reg disconnected !): connect +vsense and output; connect 0vsense and ground; connect dc powersupply to input regulator and to ground.
Make the above connections with the PSU powered off and ensure the above connections are made correctly - failure to do so WILL damage components permanently
