Blue diamond boxes NEVER got Solar Igniters, and for the first few years, neither did the pink blister paks.
I think the blue diamond boxes got discontinued somewhere around 1973 or 1974.
Solar igniters came out in mid-1972 but I dont think they were included in the engine paks until around 1978 or 1979.
I know the first engine paks my father and I bought in 1977 from the local hobby shop and Toys-R-Us had Astron igniters you had to cut apart.
I have never seen D engines in Diamond packaging either. I think they switched those from the D13's that came in tubes directly to blister packaged D12's.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and NEVER touch the brake !!!
