27156 of the Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39023 of
the Health and Safety Code;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESQLVED:   That the installation of "Sentry" electronic
ignition system manufactured by Western—Select, Inc., has been found to
not reduce the effectiveness of required motor vehicle poliution control
devices and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156
of the Vehicle Code for 6 or 12 volt negative ground cars using battery/
coil ignition systems except the following:

1.   Vehicles originally equipped with an electronic ignition system whether
     it is a breakerless, capacitive discharge, or transistorized type.

2.   All 1966—1970 model year vehicles equipped with a Dana or Carter NOx
     retrofit device using an electronic speed sensor.

The device consists of a resistor capacitor timing circuit and a silicon
controlled rectifier.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions
fgr this device will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different than those listed by the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the device,as
originally submitted to the Air Resources Board for evaluation,that
adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control
devices shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of this device using an identification other than that shown
in this Executive Order or marketing of this device for an application
other than those listed in this Executive Order shall have prior approval
of the Air Resources Board.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION, ACCREDITATION,
APPROYAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR RESOURCES BOARD
OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—PQLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY

      The above results show no significant change in the exhaust emissions.




IV.   Conclustons and Recommendations
      It is the staff‘s opinion that the Western—Select, Inc., "Sentry"
      electronic ignition system will not adversely effect the performance

      of the motor vehicle exhaust emission control system when evaluated

      with respect to the exhaust emissions obtained with a conventional

      ignition system of a "tuned" engine.   This device may also have a

      beneficial effect in the control of exhaust emissions by maintaining

      the "tuned" condition of the engine for a longer period of time.

      Therefore, the "Sentry" electronic ignition system should be exempt

      from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Motor Vehicle Code.
