On my '83 FC the dash is two parts. The bottom panel, facing up, and the front panel facing back. I used one transformer for both, and it burned out. I replaced that with two cubes, one for the bottom and one for the upper half. It has worked fine ever since. The overhead panel is not electroluminecent on the '83.

The originals were wired in series, but logic tells me that two AC voltages in series is not a smart thing. It's ok for DC, but not for AC.
