Opening PDP-11/44 CPU

Well, I've got a long weekend, so I've decided to start in on my
restoration project by determining exactly what I've got. I few minutes
ago I figured out how to get into the RL02 drives, only to discover they
are empty.

Now I'm trying to figure out how on earth to open up the CPU to find out
what cards are in it. Both James Willing and myself spent a little time
trying to figure this out the day I bought it with no luck. Finally gave
up and moved it with the CPU still in the rack.

The CPU in question is sitting in the top of a DEC rack that I believe is
about 4' high. There appear to be some sort of hydralic things on either
side of the box.

Anybody have any questions, ideas, or suggestions?
