One of the biggest problems with the dash lights is the rotten Lucas dimmer switch. If you ever have to open a defunct one, you will see why...multiple fingers working on a ridiculous looking pc board. I replace it with a true rheostat switch from an older XJ series Jaguar, when I can find them in the junk yards...also I purchase new very bright bulbs from Delta for the instruments and you actually can see them at night...in truth, I'd just bypass the dimmer switch anyway..and all will be well...providing you use the newer bright bulbs..
