                               Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

 the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;                          .

 IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Spiracle Closed Crankcase
 Filtration System, manufactured and marketed by the Donaldson Company, Inc., P.O. Box
 1299, Minneapolis, MN 55440—1299, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the
 applicable vehicle pollution control system and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions in
 Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on 1988 through 2002 model—year
 four—stroke, turbocharged heavy—duty diesel engines originally certified to standards of
 0.60 g/bhp—hr particulate matter or less, with horsepower ratings between 150 and 600 HP.

  The Spiracle Closed Crankcase Filtration System consists of a dual filter assembly which
_ replaces the draft tube on the engine. The Spiracle Closed Crankcase Filtration System
  filters the engine blow—by gases and directs them into the engine air intake. The assembly
  includes a replaceable filter element, designedto be serviced at each oil change.

 This Executive Order is granted based on testing Donaldson Company, Inc. performed on a
 1989 model—year Cummins LTA 240 heavy—duty diesel engine. Test results showed that
 the Spiracle Closed Crankcase Filtration System has no adverse impact on exhaust
 emissions when tested using the transient Federal Test Procedure for on—road heavy—duty
 diesel engines.

 This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Spiracle
 Closed Crankcase Filtration System will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
 different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

 This Executive Qrder shall not apply to any Spiracle Closed Crankcase Filtration System           _
 advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent
 with the transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

 Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Spiracle Closed Crankcase
 Filtration System, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the
 performance of the vehicle‘s poltution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

 Marketing of the Spiracle Closed Crankcease Filtration System using any identification other
 than that shown in this Executive Order or for an application other than those listed in this
 Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
 Resources Board.


                                                —2.

 Exemption of the Spiracle Closed Crankcase Filtration System shall not be construed as
 exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual
 device.

 This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect that the use of the
 Spiracle Closed Crankcase Filtration System may have on any warranty either expressed or
 implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

 In addition to the foregoing, the ARB reserves the right in the future to review this Executive
 Order and the exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted add—on or modified _
 part continues to meet the standards and procedures of Title 13, California Code of
 Regulations, Section 2222, et seq.

 THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
 ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
 AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—
 POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF DONALODSON COMPANY,
 INC.‘S SPIRACLE CLOSED CRANKCASE FILTRATION SYSTEM.

 No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board", may be made with
 respect to the action taken herein in any advertising of other oral or written communication.

  Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this Executive
  Order. The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of intention
  to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive Order may           |
_ request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation. If a hearing is requested, it
  shall be held within ten days of receipt of the request and the Executive Order may not be
  revoked until a determination is made, after the hearing, that grounds for revocation exist.

 Executed at El Monte, California, this 2/ 45         day of July 2004.
