Sorry, something went missing there. The tube-driving circuitry pulses / chops DC to feed the transformer, so direct current it may be, but not continuous. Your easiest bet may be to use the board you've got in there with the transformer still attached - but be very careful.
If you want to take it apart and re-build, have a look at these here:

You can't get a transformer to transform DC without chopping it up first !
