My mistake.  I should have said that the older 105 oscillator is 
plug-compatible with the combination of the 10811 and two add-on 
boards.  The first is the 00105-6044 board that you mentioned.  It 
includes voltage regulation and oven monitor circuitry.  Both the 10811 
and the second board plug into the 6044 board.  The second board is 
05061-6165.  It includes frequency divider, amplifier, and level adjust 
circuitry to make it plug-compatible with the older oscillator.  Here's 
a picture of that board.  Notice the 4 SMB connectors and the four 
single lead connectors - just like the older oscillator.  The 110 VAC 
heater on the old oscillator isn't needed with the 10811 so they didn't 
duplicate that.
