Yeah, that's the one I referred to as "the general -11/60 manual"; generally,
there's one such for all the -11 models, but the exact name varies from model
to model (unlike, say, the CPU tech manuals, the name for which is pretty

That would be great; thanks very much! No rush at all...

We do have that one, thanks.

BTW, looking a little more closely at the cabinet/power-supply manual
(pg. 1-7), the KD11-K TM might _only_ be available on fiche. If so, that'll be
the first time I've ever seen that. Oddly enough, further down the page, the
FP11-E TM seems to be available in printed form (EK-FP11E-TM).

Yeah, generally things from the -11/20 era are like that (e.g. the RK11-C
manual). Nothing later than that that I've ever seen, though.

I think it's the H9500 low-boy corporate cabinet, per Chapter 5 in
the cabinet/power manual.

You seem to have most of the crucial bits, although you might be missing
the power harness.

Do you have the optional WCS module (M7870)? There are also ROM modules, and
a diagnostic module, that can go in that slot - only one of the three at a
time, though.
