Bushings are made to precise tolerances.
Provides excellent clamping pressure for secure shaft connection.
Obtainable in popular and standard bore sizes.
Stainless bushings are corrosion resistant, stopping 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 really is flush installed for reduced installation width and has a split taper for a good clamp to shafts. The bushing is made from steel for greater power and shock resistance than cast iron. It really is keyed to the shaft to avoid the shaft from rotating in the bushing, in fact it is interchangeable with taper lock bushings from numerous manufacturers. This taper lock bushing is utilized in automobiles, construction products, agricultural machinery, and home appliances, amongst others. Bushings are cylindrical parts used to mount pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other components to operate a vehicle 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 driven component. They are constructed of durable metals such as for example cast iron and metal. Bushings are used in automobiles, construction products, and machine tools, amongst 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 left on the mating surfaces may cause improper installation.
Note: Usually do not lubricate mating surfaces.
2. Being careful never to harm bore or hubs, slide shaft into pulley.
3. Slide bushings onto shaft and into hubs. Oil thread point of set screws or thread and under head of capscrews. Place screws
loosely in the holes that are threaded on the hub side.
4. Locate shaft in position desired and hands tighten screws in each bushing slightly so that bushings are snug in hubs.
5. Tighten screws alternately and evenly in one bushing just until all screws are extremely tight. Use a piece of pipe on the wrench to
increase leverage. See table on the trunk for wrench torque.
Avoid extreme wrench torque to avoid harm to the threads. Then make use of a hammer against much metal or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer initial beside the screw farthest from the bushing split and then hammer on the bushing opposing side of
the screw. Avoid hammering near to the OD of the bushing to avoid damage. Functioning toward the split, hammer on bushing on
each side of each screw. Then hammer on each aspect of the bushing split. Make certain the areas on both sides of the split are also.
Screws is now able to be tightened a bit more using the specified torque. Repeat this alternate hammering and screw re-tightening
until the specified wrench torque no more turns the screws after hammering.
Check to make sure the surface on both sides of the split are actually. Fill the additional holes with grease to exclude dirt.

Taper-Lock bushings are split through the flange and gradual taper to provide a true clamp suit on the shaft this is the equivalent of a shrink fit.
Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are flangeless for clean, compact application. They are manufactured 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 are available with an optional Diamond D integral key in well-known sizes for a far more precise fit.
Stock sizes offered up to 12” shaft diameter
Globally 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 steel
L – Space necessary to tighten bushing or loosen to remove hub with puller using short hex key.
M – Space required to remove bushing using screws as jackscrews – brief hex key – no puller reuired.
Listed needed hub diameter is for reference only. Severe conditions may necessitate bigger hub and in some instances a slightly smaller sized hub may be satisfactory. Inquire about particular application.
Make use of a tapered or QD bushing from Ever-Power with sheaves, pulleys, sprockets and several other power transmitting applications. Flanged quick-disconnect bushings feature a completely split design to greatly help provide easy set up and disassembly. A tapered bushing with directly edges uses an interior screw to help drive the bushing into the shaft, while a split taper includes a flange and an integral on the bushing to greatly help provide more drive. Grab the tapered and QD bushings you will need at Ever-Power!
The Taper-Lock bushing size is defiined by 4 digits representing two numbers. The initial two digits represent the maximum bore size and the second two digits represent the bushing size. For example, product number 1008 has a max bore of 1 1.0″ and a complete amount of 0.8″
” bore sizes are specified with the whole inch followed by the fraction. For example a 1.5″ diameter bore will be 1-1/2. Metric bore sizes are specified with “MM” following the metric dimension. These bushings are easy to install and remove, these bushings match flush into tapered bushing sprockets and or pulleys. The bushing contacts and wedges inward, gripping the shaft and bore of the sprocket. Bushings possess an 8° taper, are constructed with steel and have a black oxide coating.
Gates Taper-Lock bushings are accustomed to install pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The durable stainless steel construction is well suited for meals and beverage applications or where non-corrosive sprockets are had a need to prevent rust.
