I have been looking but I have not been able to determine which Grk text was used for LEB- was it- SBL, UBS4 or 5, NA27 OR 28, ETC?

From the Preface of the LEB:

The Greek text on which the LEB New Testament is based is that of The Greek New Testament: SBL Edition (SBLGNT), a new edition produced by Michael W. Holmes in conjunction with the Society of Biblical Literature and Logos Bible Software. In its evaluation of textual variation, the SBLGNT uses modern text-critical methodology along with guidance from the most recently available articles, monographs, and technical commentaries to establish the text of the Greek New Testament.

On its Information page, under Reverse Interlinear, it states alignment to SBLGNT. I would say that text was used for the translation.

The first edition of the LEB New Testament was a translation of the NA27.

The second edition (and subsequent editions) are translations of the SBLGNT. We released the SBLGNT after the LEB was published and reviewed all the areas where the SBLGNT differs from NA27 and retranslated those areas from the SBLGNT.

The Hebrew Bible used by the LEB is the Lexham Hebrew Bible.
