Rootes Service Bulletin: TO: All Rootes Dealers
Model: SUNBEAM TIGER (260)
Subject: High Pressure Line Failure
Isolated cases of failure of the high pressure oil line, top of oil filter to cylinder block, have been brought to our notice due to chafing of this pipe against the universal joint of the steering column. This, if allowed to continue, could eventually cause break-through of the hose and complete loss of oil. Will all addressees please bring this to the attention of all service personnel, to ensure that on P.D.I. 500-mile free service, or at normal servicing periods, the clearance between the oil filter pipe and the steering universal joint is sufficient to prevent this chafing.
