I understand this rocket used a "refurbished" Russian rocket engine.

Yes it did.
I've always had an interest in NASA and space travel. My brother in law owned a machine shop and I worked there during high school. He had several contracts with NASA. I operated a drill press and worked on thousands of small aluminum alloy parts that were used in the shuttles. The work was tedious and the tolerances were incredible. Every 5th part had to be certified to be within tolerance after each step and we are talking about thousands of parts per order. But I loved it and always thought it was so cool that something I had a small part in making was being used on the shuttle and traveling into space.

Amazing pictures Crabman thanks for sharing. I was there back in March when they scrubbed a launch and I was disappointed. Wish I lived closer to see one I bet it is amazing.
