CUT a bit.....roll between two hard plates (glass, steel...etc) should behave like putty....longer and thinner.....
If it just crumbles it will need VERY slightly moistened.... pure water or alcohol will work...

This is the wick with no internal wire correct?

Why couldn't you "make" your own fuses using something like sewing or carpet thread? Coat (spray/brush/dip) the thread with contact-cement.. and dust-it with black-powder or matchstick "heads" that have been crushed into powder.. Shocked

I'm sure that you can make one small enough to fit through the engines' .035" nozzle-hole.. and no internal wire to be concerned with.

The engine should be able to be repaired. While it's distorted, it should be able to be repaired enough to seal.
