Final answer I get is 12959 volts
I convert Delta load to wye and solve it for phase voltage
Vsource - VD across line reactance = Load voltage
This gives v source per phase multiplied by SQRT 3 to line line to line voltage of 12959 volts.

...and that is not to take away from David who first detailed Phil's error as shown below. But for some reason, after multiple members agreed with David's assessment, Phil could not seem to understand and suggested David should go back to school.
David's circuit analysis skills may have laid dormant but he certainly did not forget how to use them and evidently needed no refresher.
BB+/BB=?
Well guys if this was a PE exam question, it would be pencils down and the clock would have run out by now.

When I solve it using the method above, you don't need to go into phasor etc for this kind of problem. It is quick and dirty and most importantly correct.
