                              CATALYTIC CONVERTERS"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391,     and Title 13,   California
Code of Regulations (hereafter "CCR") Section 2222(h), authorize the
California Air Resources Board (ARB)} and its Executive Officer to exempt new
aftermarket catalytic converters from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code
Section 27156.                                                        '

WHEREAS, Walker Manufacturing of 3901 Willis Road,     P.O.   Box 157,   Grass Lake,
Michigan 49240 has applied to the ARB for     exemption from the prohibitions in
Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for     their new aftermarket two—way
(0OC), three—way (TWC)}, and three—way plus   oxidation (TWC + OC) catalytic
converters for vehicle applications shown     in the Appendix.

+~WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Health
and Safety Code Section 39515 and in the Chief, Mobile Source Division by
Health and Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—45—5, the ARB
finds that the above aftermarket catalytic converters comply with the
California Vehicle Code Section 27156 and Title 13,     California Code of
Regulations, Section 2222(h).   Emission performance of the catalytic
converters was based on durability mileage accumulation of 25,000 miles
using the AMA durability driving schedule (Reference Appendix IV, Title 40,
part 86, Code of Federal Reqgulations (June 28, 1977)}).

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the above catalytic converters are exempt from
the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and for installation on the
approved application vehicles subject to the following conditions:

   1.   No changes are permitted to the converters as described in the
        application for exemption.  Any changes to the converters or any of
        their components, applicable model year, or other factors addressed
        in this order must be evaluated and approved by the ARB prior to
        marketing in California.

   2.    Marketing of the converters using identifications other than those
         shown in the exemption applications or marketing of the converters
         for applications other than ones listed in the application catalog
        shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.
         Exemption of these products shall not be construed as an exemption to
         sell, offer for sale, or advertise any components of the converters
         as individual devices.

              by Walker Manufacturing, its principals, agents, employees,
              distributors, dealers, or other representatives must include the
              disclaimer that the Executive Order or the exemption it provides is
              not an endorsement or approval of any emissions reduction claims for
              the catalytic converters and is only a finding that the converters
              are exempt from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156.

         4.   Upon installation, the éatalytic converters must carry a
              manufacturer‘s warranty for 25,000 miles on the substrates and 50,000
