The ones I have found online are:

DEC-11-H05AA-A-D		Jan, '73	PDP-11/05 computer manual
DEC-11-H05AA-B-D		Sept, '74	PDP-11/05, 11/10 computer manual
DEC-11-H05AA-B-D Supplement 1	July, '74	PDP-11/05, 11/10 10-1/2 inch mounting box and power system
DEC-11-H05AA-B-D Supplement 2	July, '74	Description of data paths module M7260 revision M
DEC-11-H05SS-B-D		Jan, '75	PDP-11/05-S, 11/10-S system manual
EK-11005-TM-003			April, '75	PDP-11/05, 11/10 computer manual

(The 2nd-4th are in a single file.)

The ones that are available seem to be pretty comprehensive coverage of the
05-10, the 05N-10N, and the 05S-10S. If yours has some significant material
that is not in the others, then please scan it. Otherwise, it may not be
worth the trouble (especially if you do not have an auto-feed scanner... :-).

Right, that's the ME11-L, which is an MF11-L backplane in a 5-1/4 box; it
normally came with one MM11-L board set (16KB) installed, and one could add
two more sets.
