   FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE PROHIBITIONS OF VEKICLE CODE SECTION 27156 AND
         TITLE 13, CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS, SECTION 2222(h)


I.        INTRODUCTION
          TRI—D Industries, Inc. of 820 East 5th Street, Port Clinton, Ohic

43452, has applied for an exemption for their new aftermarket two—way or

oxidation catalytic converters in accordance with the California regulations

on new aftermarket catalytic converters.       The converters and their

applications are shown below:

Series No              Engine Size               Max. Yeh. Wt .

TD—2000                5.7L (350 CID)             5250 lbs

TD~6000                5.7L (350 CID)             4000 1bs

II.       CONCLUSTON

          The applicant has submitted all the required information and based

on the submitted exhaust emissions test data, the staff concludes that the

two—way catalytic converters meet the criteria set forth in Vehicle Code

Section 27156 and Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h).

III.      RECOMMENDATION

          The staff recommends that the exemption be granted as requested and

that Executive Order No. D—188—1 be issued, permitting the advertisement,

sale and installation of the new aftermarket catalytic converters.

IV.       DEVICE DESCRIPTION

          The TRI—D catalytic converters consist of honeycomb type substrates

coated with palladium and rhodium.       The substrate is enclosed in an outer

shell or container of stainless steel.       The converters use materials and

construction similar to the original equipment manufacturers.       The catalytic

converters are sold with installation instructions and kits as shown in the

application catalog.       They are also sold with a two year or 25,000 mile

warranty on the substrates and five years or 50,000 miles on the container

or shell.


V.       DEVICEEVALUATION
         TRI—D Industries, Inc. provided test data on the catalytic

converters.     The tests were conducted by DMACS Engineering Laboratories,

Inc., Telford, Pennsylvania.       Two CVS—75 emission tests were conducted on

each of the test vehicles with the converters installed and two CVS—75 tests

were conducted with exhaust backpressure simulator.       The tests were

conducted following the 25,000 mileage accumulation on each of the two test

converters.     The mileage accumulation vehicles had test weights and engine
displacement equal or higher than the test vehicle.

         Exemption for each converter application is limited to the actual

test or inertia weight and engine size of either the mileage accumulation

vehicle or the test ("slave") vehicle, whichever has the lower parameters.

The test results and conversion efficiencies of the converters are shown

below:

All of the conversion efficiencies meet the requirements of the California

regulations.     The staff based the evaluation of the new aftermarket

catalytic converters on the information submitted and tests data from DMACS

Engingering Laboratories, Inc.
