Subject:    Exemption of the GMC Electronic Ignition Retrofit Kit

Dear Mr. Drachand:

Mr. T.M. Fisher, Director—Automotive Emissions Control, GM Tech Center
recently communicated with you regarding exemption to MV code section
27156 for General Motors Truck & Coach Electronic Ignition retrofit kit
#2234808. Mr. Luczynski called me on November 1, 1976 to inform me that
all such requests must originate with the manufacturer of the system.

Gulf + Western, therefore, requests exemption to the MV code section
27156 for General Motors Truck & Coach Electronic Ignition retrofit kit
#2234808.    Gulf + Western manufactures this kit for GMC Truck & Coach, and
the kit is functionally identical with the Zenith kit for GM—8 application
(single pack #130—10).     There is absolutely no change in the GMC unit as
compared to the Zenith unit other than the nameplate and packaging. The
CMC Electronic Ignition kit will be merchandised by a "single pack". This
Zenith kit was exempted by the Califormia Air Resources Board by Executive
Order #D—58, August 12, 1975.  I believe a sample of the GMC kit has already
been received by Mr. Luczynski for your evaluation.

If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

                                               Very truly yours,

 Dear Mr. Drachand:

 This is in response to your October 1, 1976 letter concerning a GMC
 Electronic Ignition Conversion Kit, manufactured by Gulf and Western
 Manufacturing Company. Please consider this letter as a formal appli—
 cation for an exemption of this kit from the prohibitions of California
 Motor Vehicle Code Section 27156.

 In support of this request, we are aftaching a letter from Gulf and Western
 Manufacturing Company that is relevent to the application,. This letter
 states that the GMC kit is functionally identical with the Zenith kit that
 you have already exempted by Executive Order D—58. A copy of the
 executive order, your staff report, and the application submitted by Gulf
 and Western for exemption of the Zenith kit is attached.

 Since the Zenith kit is functionally identical to the GMC kit, we see no
 need to supply additional data to support our application for exemption.
 However, we are sending you one of the kits for any further evaluation
 that you wish to perform.

 Should additional information be required, please let us know.
