                      of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code


I.     Introduction
       Contignitron Company, 7625-24 E. Rosecrans Ave. , Paramount, California
       90723 has applied f o r an exemption f o r i t s "Mod IV" ignition device.
       Contignitron intends t o market t h i s device f o r 1974 and older model-
      . year   vehicles equipped w i t h a standard Kettering ignition system.
       Volkswagen and Honda vehicles and vehicles equipped w i t h a capacitive
       discharge or transistorized ignition system (including breakerless
       systems) a r e s p e c i f i c a l l y exempted.   A copy of t h e application i s shown
       in Appendix I.

11.    Device Description and Function
       The "Mod IV" is an electronic device whose basic functions a r e t o
       regulate the spark timing, t h e saturation of t h e ignition c o i l , and
       t o reduce the current load flowing through t h e d i s t r i b u t o r breaker
       points.


C-           -




     a       In normal operation, the current flows in the coil primary circuit
             developing a magnetic field when the breaker points are closed (dwell
             time) and the induced coil secondary voltage is discharged to the spark
             plugs when the points open.   With the "Mod IV" device, these events are
             controlled by an electronic timer circuit triggered by the breaker point
             signal. Upon receiving the signal, the timer circuit will discharge the
             coil within a given time frame. This delay is variable depending upon engine
             speed and controls the spark timing to within the tolerance a1 lowed for OEM
             specifications. In addition, the timer circuit controls point dwell by
             the on-off conduction of the transistorized power switch. The transistor
             also relieves the heavy current switching performed by the breaker points.
             The device's installation instructions are shown in Appendix I.

         111. Device Evaluation
     e       A.   Contigni tron Company's Data
                  The applicant submitted electrical specifications for the operating
                  characteristics of its device and spark timing curves illustrating
                  the timing control produced by the device. The spark timing curves
                  and specifications are shown in Appendix I.
             B.   ARB Data
                  Tests were performed on an ignition simulator comparing the per-
                  formance of two devices with two representative OEM ignition systems.
                  The systems selected for comparison were as follows:


      Late-model Chrysler-breaker point type.         Distributor
        P/N 3656390

      Late-model Fiat-breaker point type, centrifugal advance only.
        Distrfbutor PJN (Marelli S 147)
    Table I compares the centrifugal advance characteristics of
    the above OEM systems and the characteristics obtained with
    the "Mod IV" device installed i n these systems.         A t distributor
    speeds of 300 RPM and lower, the system i n p u t voltage was
    reduced to 6 vdc t o simulate starting conditions.          These data
    indicate that the device produces spark t i m i n g that i s w i t h i n
    acceptable variations from the OEM specifications.

    In the evaluation of the "Mod IV" device, measurements were
a   made of the electrical characteristics of the ignition systems
    considered c r i t i c a l to emission control during the operation
    of the vehicle.     The methodology used for these t e s t s was
    to determine the maximum spark gap setting for continuous
    arcing of the OEM system a t a distributor speed simulating
    high cruise conditions.      A t this setting, measurements of the
    OEM system electrical characteristics were made.          The device
    was then installed i n the system and the sparktng capability
    of the device was observed using the predetermined gap setting
    and corresponding distributor speed.        If the sparking capability
    is considered equivalent t o that of the OEM system, the device's
    electrical characteristics were measured.         Inconsistent o r an
    absence o f sparking capabi l i ty a t the predetenni ned gap settings
    i s unacceptable.

                            Table I1 shows a comparison of the electrical characteristics
    ,.   m                  of each type of ignition system. In one of the tests, the data
                            indicate that the device produced an increase in coil primary
                            current. This may be the result of the method the applicant
                            is using to increase dwell time. However, other related
                            characteristics were not affected by this apparent increase
                            in coil current. In all of the tests, no adverse effects were
                            noted with the device.

             IV. Device Limitations
                  The "Mod IV" device cannot be installed in the following vehicles:
                  1.        Vol kswagen and Honda vehicles.
                  2.        Vehicles with positive ground.
                  3.        Vehicles with cap;tive     discharge or transistorized ignition
    a                       systems including breakerless types.

                  4.        Vehicles with special ignition coils.

             V.   Conclusions and Recommendations
                  The staff is of the opinion that the "Mod IV" device will not affect
                  the performance and operation of emission control systems. There-
                  fore, the staff recommends that Contignitron Company be granted an
                  exemption from the prohibitions of section 27156 for its "Mod IV"
                  ignition device on 1974 and older model-year vehicles except as noted
                  in paragraph IV.

      DO NOT INSTALL ON VEHICLES WHICH ARE EQUIPPED WITH CAPACITIVE
      DISCHARGE IGNITION SYSTEMS. THIS DEVICE IS NOT COMPATIBLE WlTH THESE
      SYSTEMS. FOR INSTALLATION ON NEGATIVE GROUND AND CENTRIFUGAL
      ADVANCE DISTRIBUTORS ONLY.
       DO NOT INSTALL ON VEHICLES WHICH HAVE BEEN EQUIPPED WlTH CAPACITIVE
       DISCHARGE IGNITION SYSTEMS. (OR REPLACE IGNITION COIL BEFORE INSTAL-
       LATION OF DEVICE).

       FAILURE TO DO SO WILL CAUSE PRE-IGNITION AND VOlD WARRANTY.
      ANY MODIFICATION TO DEVICE CIRCUITRY, OPERATION OR INSTALLATION IS
      I N VIOLATION OF THE CALIFORNIA VEHICLE CODE, AND WILL RESULT IN A
      HEAVY FINE AND THE VOIDING OF ANY WARRANTY.
      INSTALLATION OF THE DEVICE MUST BE MADE AWAY FROM THE EXHAUST
      MANIFOLD AND WHERE I T WILL BE MAINTAINED RELATIVELY DRY, DURING
      THE RAINY SEASON.
      EXTREME CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN WHEN CONNECTING THE BLACK AND WHITE
      TERMINAL TO THE POINTSSIDE OF THE IGNITION COIL. FAILURE TO DO SO
      WILL RESULT I N A DAMAGED DEVICE AND VOlD ANY WARRANTY.




                               Models 4. 6 & 8 Installation Instructions


1.   lnstallation (See Figure 2)
     A.   Disconnect wire from distributor points at negative side of coil. Remove existing terminal and
          attach spring terminal supplied with unit t o this wire.
     B.   Mount device to chassis of vehicle utilizing metal clamp and metal screw supplied. Device
          should be mounted as far from exhaust manifold as possible. Use 931 drill bit for metal
          screw hole.
     C.   Loosen nut on positive side of ignition coil, connect red wire and tighten nut. (For later model
          Ford products supplied with slip connectors, cut off connector.) Strip wire from ignition
          switch and connect standard spade lug. Connect red wire and wire from ignition switch with
          standard 10132 nut.
     D.   Connect black and white wire supplied with spring and spade lug to negative side of coil. (For
          later model Ford products connect with standard 10132 nut.)
     E.   Connect braided wire to engine or chassis ground.
     F.   Connect wire from distributor points to green wire and slide insulator sleeve over connection.


     H.   Start engine and reset timing' to manufacturers specifications. I t is extremely important that
          this step be followed because the device, when instal!ed, will electronica/ly retard riming 6
          o f crankshaft angle.
' Distributors with dual diaphragms, timing must be set to manufacturers specifications and set idle speed
 t o 600 RPM.
