The solution to my problems was the following:
I replaced the two 15 meter traps on the director element and readjusted the antenna element lengths to reflect the "center" of the band.
When using the MFJ analyzer to check our work on with the antenna on sawhorses 30" above ground, the lowest swr was consistently lower than the band it was intended to work on:
40 meters: 6.195 mhz = 1.2:1
20 meters: 13.585 mhz = 1.2:1
15 meters: 20.166 mhz = 1.5:1
10 meters: 26.277 MHz = 1.2:1
This had occurred before but the feeling was the after raising the antenna that the proximity to ground would bring the antenna into correct readings.
Well it didn't. It was actually worse than before. LOL
We started to look at the balun (a Comtek 1:1 dual torrid) I had gotten and attached to the boom.
The leads from the balun to the driven element were 18" on each leg. We had added 3 feet of length to the driven element.
We repositioned the balun and left 5" on each leg of the balanced feedline wire to the driven element and the readings were correct and the antenna is exceeding my expectations. The center of the band element spacing is right on in relation to the q of the antenna.
Keep the balun to driven element leads as short as possible. They become part of the antenna system.
If the antenna is not even close to the band you wish to work when using your analyer, don't put it up thinking that your problems will go away. You should be in the ball park or close to a match at the band you wish to use it on.
