Did you try the Google filetype:pdf search? Only PDF's will be returned.

As FZ said, the best source is Los Alamos National Laboratory or one of its mirror sites. However, the front page of that site is a bit sterile, and you have to know what you are looking for. That leads me to MIT's Net Advance of Physics, which takes many documents (mostly from LANL) and alphebetizes them by subject, making it much more user-friendly.

And of course, right here at PF we have Physics Napster, where we have collected many, many links to free pdf books and articles.
