     Introduction

    ‘Sears, Roebuck and Co., P;;;figvégast Buying Office, Dept. 733

   | P.C.B., 900 South Fremont Avenue, Alhambra, California 91802 has

     submitted an application requesting an exemption from the-pqo-

     hibitions of Section 27156 of the motor vehicle code for the

     "Sears Penske Capacitive Discharge Electronic Ignition System,

     No. 8205" and "Sears Penske Breakeriess Conversion Kit, No. 8206"

     (Reference Exhibit A).     Yehicle Code Secfion 27156 profi}bi%s the

    :ifista11ation of any device or mechanism which reduces the effective—

     ness of the emission control system.     The Air Resources Béard has

     been granted the authority under this vehicle code section to exempt

     devices from this prohibiiion if a finding shows the device does not

     reduce the effectiveness or performance of the emission control system.

     The applicant is requesting the installation of the 8205 system on

     all 1974 and older model—year vehicles equipped with conventional point

     system and the 8206 system on 1974 and older model—year Ford and General

     Motor Corporation vehicles equipped with an eight cylinder engine and a

     breakerpoint type distributor.


 Evaluation of the Sears, Roebuck and Co., "Sears
 Penske Capacitive Discharge Electronic Ignition
 System, No. 8205" and "Sears Penske Breakerless
 Conversion Kit, No. 8206" for Compliance with the
 Requirements of Section 27156 of the California
+ Motor Vehicle Code                                     '    January 28, 1975

 II.   System Description

       The 8205 system is a capacitive discfiarge system which is installed

       into the ignition system.     The 8206 system replaces the breaker—

       points with a magnetic pick—up unit and requires the use of an

       E.D.M. modulTe and the 8205 system.    Both systems are manufacturéd

       for Sears, Roebuck Co. by'Afito_5£%rt/5ystematics, Inc., 547 North

       Wheeler Street, Saint Paul, Minnesota 55104.; Exhibit 8 shows the

       electrical schematic and installation instructions for thg device.


       The 8205 system consists of the triggering, energy transfer,

       storage and discharée circuits,     After the discharge circuit is

       activated, saturation of the transformer within the C. D. unit is

       accémplishéd.    This energy is transferred from the transformer

       secondary through two rectifiers to a storage capacitor.     The

       storage‘andvdischarge circuit releases this energy to the primary

       side of the ignition coil.     When the distributor points open, this

       causes the silicon controlled rectifier to stop current flow to the

       ignition coil which causes the spark plug to fire.

       For the 8206 syétem a magnetic—pick—up is mounted in place of the

       distributor points.     This unit consists of a coil core and a

       permanent magnet.     The coil core is placed near the existing dis—

       tributor cam lobe.     When the high point of the cam moves passed the

       coil core, a signal is generated which is transferred to the E.D.M.

       modutle.   The modute amplifies and filters the signal by producing

     a square~wavelsigna1 which is identical to the signal caused by

     point opening.    This square—wave signal is sent to the triggering

     circuit of the capacitive discharge                system.


    Acéording to the applicant, these systems are designed to reduce

     servicing of the ignition system by decreasing the numberof tuneups.


III. System Evaluation
     The Air Resources Board staff‘s evaluation of these two devices

   _ was based on a consideration of the method used to mount the

     magnetic—pick—up unit and the electrical output of the devices.

     The vehicles used in this test program are described below:

     Since the magnetic pick—up unit used on the 6M Delco distributor

     application is held down by two cotter pins, it was necessary to

     determine if this installation was adequate to prevent lateral                      |

     movement of the magnetic pick—up unit.              The device was installed

     on the Pontiac per the installation instructions.                This yehicle was

     driven several times on thé“dy;;m;meter using the Hot CVS—1 driving

    .procedure.        After completion of the testing, a feeler gauge was

    .used to méasure the gap between the cam lobe and the magnetic

     pick—up.      The magnetic pick—up did not move during the test.


     The next set of tesis consists of measuring the electrical output

     of the device.          The following table summarizes the results of the

     baseline, No. 8205 and No. 8206 systems.

      The above results generally show changes in spark duration, rise time,

     ‘and secondary available voltages when the device tests are compared to

      baseline.         The 7% increase in avaflable voltage is within a range not

      considered detrimental to the O.E.M. fgnition system.                      Likewise the

      reduction in spark duration to 220 u sec. is not expected to
      cause a measurable affect on exhaust emissions.                      The increase in rise rate

      and voitage level generally means a higher intensity spark will be pro—
      duced.         The above results indicate the insfa?lation of the 8205 or 8206

      systems would not have any significant effect on the emission control system.

      granted an exemption from the prohibitions of Section 27156 for

      the Sears Penske Capacitive Discharge Electronic Ignition Unit,
      No. 8205 and Sears Penske Breakerless Conversion Kit, No. 8206

      for the following app]icationsé                           |

 Dear Mr. Lew:                  nomnes sez

 I wish to thank you for the information you gave me in our phone conversation
 of January I9th, 4s a result we have tested the Carter Emission Reduction Kit
 on the bench and found that the enclosed recommended procedure does properly
 activate the speed sensing circuit.

 We reviewed the compatibility problem with the Lana (Perfect Circle) people,
 both in California and in Indiana,       Their recoumendation was to have the user
 convert to the Vacuum Delay Vaive if the unit was already equipped with the
 electronic switch, They indicated that the electronic approach was to be
 limited to the initial stocks in the field, and eventually would be a minor
 factor in the mumber of instailations, The Vacuum approach does not need a
 signal from the igoition system,.

 However, the DANA pcople in Indiana indicated that they were preparing for
 their California dealers a set of instructions for dealer modification of the
 electronic speed switch to separate the power and tach signal so that it would
 be compatible with C.D, ignition,       The instructions are now being printed.
 We discussed the recommendations they would make and prepared our insert ac=
 cordingly.

 Therefore, we are submitting the following format for instructions to be in=
 serted on Page 10 of the Scars' OWNERS Manual for all uhits shipped to Calife
 ornia.

 We certify that the Scears‘ Penske Capacitive Discharge Ignition Unit (28.8205)
 will properly trigger the Carter Emission Reduction Kit when wired per thoese
 instructions, As the signal used (the TACH signal from the Amplifier Unit)
 is available in the same form for both the 28.8205 installation and for breaker—
 less conversion with the 28,.8206 Breakerless Conversion Kit, we certify the
 compatibility for both Sears! items.

. As the Vacuum Delay Valve form of the DANA RETRONOX Kit does not use an igni~
 tion signal, no certification is rcqu:.red.

 As the Electronic Speed Switch version of the DANL RETRONOX Kit is be:mg ana=

     Mre—George Low                                                               :

     lyzed and proper recommendation being prepared by DAMA, we can certify only
     that we produce a signal compatible with their indicated requirements when
     wired as shown in their instructions and by the enclosed instructions.

     Please contact us if changes are required in the enclosed insert.
