Shelf life of rocket engines

Does anyone have any experience attempting to fire model rocket engines
(Estes and FSI E60's) that are approximately 20 years old?  Or does anyone
have a feeling for their shelf life?  If so, I would appreciate your
comments.   jim

I have fired many engines over twenty years old without any trouble.
