I have EK-11060-OP-003: "PDP-11/60 installation and operation manual"
and an update EK-11060-OP-C1.

Of course this is not the real technical manual that explains the
processor in detail, but it has the self-test error halts, boot
procedure, etc., which I expect would be handy.

I don't see this manual on bitsavers, so let me know and I will scan it
in and stick it on my Google drive in a day or two or three where you
and Al could snag the scan.

I also have a spare processor handbook, EB-06498-20/77, but it is in a
box in the garage, so I'd rather wait a week or two for warmer weather
to dig it out.  <shiver>
