Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516 of

[T IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Flame—Thrower Billet
Distributors, manufactured and marketed by Pertronix, Inc., 440 E. Arrow Highway, San

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the
Flame—Thrower Billet Distributors will not recommend tuning or altering base timing
specifications different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

This exemption is issued based on information supplied by the device manufacturer which
demonstrates that the Flame—Thrower Billet Distributors meet the compliance criteria for
ignition distributors as specified under "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified
Parts" and therefore, will not increase emissions.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Flame—Thrower Billet
Distributors, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance
of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.


Marketing of the Flame—Thrower Billet Distributors using any identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Flame—Thrower Biliet Distributors for an
application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior
approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR

FLAME—THROWER BILLET DISTRIBUTORS.

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 or other oral or written communication.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order. The
order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of intention to revoke the order, in
which period the holder of the 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 order may not be revoked until a determination is made after the
