I finally found a Panapet for a decent price. It didn't have a chain, but I cobbled one together. The top half of the cover does not seem to connect right. Basically, the two knobs are holding it on. Can someone explain and/or show to me how it is supposed to connect to the inner core? Also I don't know what the length of the chain should be.

I don't know. Maybe someone misaligned the plastic when screwing together?

P.S. Try saying Panasonic Panapet Problems 10 times over!

Only the bottom screws on, and the top has alignment slots so it only goes on in one certain position. I am thinking about a couple of dabs of glue that could be cut out in the future, if need be.

Do you have the top on 90 degrees off axis? Doesn't that tab (right circle) have to sit in the slot (left circle)?

No, the position of the top is largely determined by the two knob holes having to line up with the control shafts. The position of the bottom is determined by the thumbscrew having to line up with the threaded hole in the chassis. So the three main parts ( top cover, bottom cover, and chassis) can only fit together one way. My problem is that the top cover does not attach to the chassis. The second picture shows how the top cover can be lifted a little at any time. Here is the same angle with the top down (but not attached).

Here is the radio apart, showing the three main parts.

After I posted the picture of the radio unassembled, I figured it out. The little black post at the top of the chassis is broken off from the top cover. You can see where it broke off from in the picture, just above the red dot. The post is held to the chassis with a small screw. A little glue, and problem solved.

A little dab of Goop Contact Adhesive will solve that problem.
