         Regulations (hereafter "CCR")   Section 2222(h), authorize the California Air

         WHEREAS, Walker Manufacturing of 3901 Willis Road, 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 converters listed in
         Exhibit A which is attached hereto and incorporated herein.

         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

        . Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h).  Emission performance of the catalytic
          converters was based on durability mileage accumulation of 25,000 miles
095 \




          using the AMA durability driving schedule (Reference Appendix IV, Title 40,
          Part 86, Code of Federal Requlations (June 28, 1977)).

         IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the above catalytic converters are exempt from
         the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for installation
         on applicable vehicles subject to the following conditions:

            1.   No changes are permitted to the catalytic converters as described in
                 the application for exemption.  Any changes to the catalytic
                 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 application or marketing of the catalytic
                 converters for vehicle applications other than the ones listed in
                 this order 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
                 catalytic converters as individual devices.

            3.   Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content
                 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 catalytic
                 converters are exempt from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Sections
                 27156 and 38391.
