Bushings are created to precise tolerances.
Provides excellent clamping push for secure shaft connection.
Obtainable in popular and regular bore sizes.
Stainless bushings are corrosion resistant, preventing rust buildup to improve product life.
This Ever-Power’s size 3030 taper lock bushing with a torque capacity of 24000 in-lbs is constructed of steel and can be used for mounting a taper lock pulley, sheave, or sprocket on a drive shaft. It is flush installed for reduced installation width and has a split taper for a tight clamp to shafts. The bushing is made of steel for greater strength and shock level of resistance than cast iron. It is keyed to the shaft to prevent the shaft from rotating in the bushing, and it is interchangeable with taper lock bushings from numerous producers. This taper lock bushing can be used in automobiles, construction products, agricultural machinery, and home appliances, amongst others. Bushings are cylindrical parts used to attach pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other parts to drive shafts for the transmission of mechanical power. Most bushings are split and have a tapered outside surface so they will clamp to the shaft when tightened against the tapered bore of the powered component. They are constructed of durable metals such as for example cast iron and metal. Bushings are found in automobiles, construction equipment, and machine tools, among others. Ever-Power’s manufactures bushings, pulleys, couplings, and electronic motor controls.
1. Before installing the bushing, polish the next components:
a. Surface of shaft
b. Bore of the bushing
c. Tapered inside diameter of the Taper-Lock hub
d. Tapered outside diameter of the Taper-Lock bushing
Remove all burrs and foreign materials. Any particles still left on the mating surfaces may cause improper installation.
Note: Do not lubricate mating surfaces.
2. Being careful never to damage bore or hubs, slip shaft into pulley.
3. Slide bushings onto shaft and into hubs. Oil thread point of arranged screws or thread and under head of capscrews. Place screws
loosely in the holes that are threaded on the hub side.
4. Locate shaft constantly in place desired and hands tighten screws in each bushing slightly so that bushings are snug in hubs.
5. Tighten screws alternately and evenly in a single bushing only until all screws are extremely tight. Use a piece of pipe on the wrench to
increase leverage. See desk on the back for wrench torque.
Avoid extreme wrench torque to prevent damage to the threads. Then use a hammer against a heavy metal or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer first beside the screw farthest from the bushing split and hammer on the bushing reverse side of
the screw. Avoid hammering near to the OD of the bushing to prevent damage. Operating toward the split, hammer on bushing on
each side of every screw. After that hammer on each aspect of the bushing split. Make sure the surfaces on both sides of the split are actually.
Screws is now able to be tightened a little more using the specified torque. Repeat this alternate hammering and screw re-tightening
before specified wrench torque no more turns the screws after hammering.
Check to ensure the surface on both sides of the split are even. Fill the other holes with grease to exclude dirt.
Taper-Lock bushings are split through the flange and gradual taper to provide a true clamp match on the shaft this is the exact carbon copy of a shrink fit.
Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are flangeless for clean, compact application. They are engineered with an 8° taper and a flush-mounted design with no protruding parts providing protected locking and elimination of wobble. Furthermore, Dodge Taper-Lock bushings can be found with an optional Diamond D integral key in popular sizes for a far more precise fit.
Stock sizes available up to 12” shaft diameter
Worldwide acceptance and availability inch and metric bores
Flush Mounting-No Protruding Parts
Diamond D Integral Important for Added Value and Convenience
Materials available in sintered steel, cast iron, ductile iron, steel and stainless
L – Space necessary to tighten bushing or loosen to remove hub with puller using short hex key.
M – Space necessary to remove bushing using screws as jackscrews – short hex key – no puller reuired.
Listed needed hub diameter is usually for reference just. Severe conditions may require bigger hub and in some cases a slightly smaller hub may be satisfactory. Inquire about specific application.
Use a tapered or QD bushing from Ever-Power with sheaves, pulleys, sprockets and several other power transmission applications. Flanged quick-disconnect bushings feature a completely split style to greatly help provide easy set up and disassembly. A tapered bushing with straight edges uses an internal screw to greatly help drive the bushing in to the shaft, while a split taper includes a flange and a key on the bushing to help provide more drive.

The Taper-Lock bushing size is defiined by 4 digits representing two numbers. The first two digits represent the maximum bore size and the next two digits represent the bushing duration. For instance, product number 1008 has a max bore of 1 1.0″ and a total length of 0.8″
In . bore sizes are designated with the whole inch followed by the fraction. For instance a 1.5″ diameter bore would be 1-1/2. Metric bore sizes are designated with “MM” after the metric dimension. These bushings are easy to install and remove, these bushings fit flush into tapered bushing sprockets and or pulleys. The bushing contacts and wedges inward, gripping the shaft and bore of the sprocket. Bushings have an 8° taper, are made from steel and come with a black oxide coating.
Gates Taper-Lock bushings are accustomed to install pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The durable stainless steel construction is perfect for food and beverage applications or where non-corrosive sprockets are needed to prevent rust.
