Igniter Placement Tip

When setting an igniter in an engine, try this:
Set the igniter wires away from the launch lug position.
It's simply easier to connect up the clips when the igniter ends are oppossite from the launch rod.
The two wires should be placed between two fins opposite the lug.
If your igniter is not away from the launch lug or not between two fins, don't bend the igniter into this position. You could bend and cross the igniter leads.
Simply lift the engine hook and rotate the engine casing to a better position.

Notice the igniter leads are lightly bent up and turned to the side away from the open nozzle.
The leads are not straight down from the nozzle hole.
This keeps the micro clips away from the engine flame extending their usable life.
