Ah... I've seen Tech Manuals printed as 2-up on C-sized paper,
sometimes with interstitial 11"x17" drawings that would have been
fold-outs in 8.5"x11" format.

Cool (MPxxxxx should be Maintenance Prints)

Totally fair.

No... "the rack" is just the outer box with rails (not an H960 -
whatever the designation is for the odd 11/60 cabinet).  The
backplanes are in the BA11s.

I seem to have both MOS and core memory and, I am fairly sure, an
RK611, along with the CPU.  I need to take a module inventory.
