Default Vintage Estes quality control

I've wanted an Estes Python since I got back into the hobby in 2001. http://www.rocketreviews.com/python...-1997-2000.html After many Ebay failures I finally won one last week. I was pumped. It arrived yesterday, so I unboxed it tonight at work. All bagged up inside and everything is in great shape.
But, wait! Where's the motor tube?
Nope. No motor tube. This poor kit has been sitting around without a means of propulsion for 15-18 years. Good thing I have a pile of scrap BT-50 laying around.
