More Rockets Mach 10 Build Part 2, Engine Mount
Here's the kit supplied engine hook.
A flex of the hook easily bent it. I threw it away.
Here's the replacement hook made from the metal strip inside a windshield wiper blade.
The split tube spacer wasn't cut flat on one end. I ended up using a yellow Estes spacing tube to set the engine block.
As shown in the Centuri instructions, two Mylar retaining rings are used over the engine hook.
A Estes 20 sized plastic nose cone was used in place of the too large Centuri cone.
