Bushings are made to precise tolerances.
Provides excellent clamping drive for secure shaft connection.
Available in popular and standard bore sizes.
Stainless steel bushings are corrosion resistant, stopping rust buildup to increase product life.
This Ever-Power’s size 3030 taper lock bushing with a torque capacity of 24000 in-lbs is made of steel and can be used for mounting a taper lock pulley, sheave, or sprocket on a drive shaft. It is flush mounted for reduced mounting width and includes a split taper for a good 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 avoid the shaft from rotating in the bushing, and it is interchangeable with taper lock bushings from different manufacturers. This taper lock bushing is used in automobiles, construction equipment, agricultural machinery, and kitchen appliances, amongst others. Bushings are cylindrical parts used to mount pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other parts to drive shafts for the tranny of mechanical power. The majority of bushings are split and also have a tapered outside surface area so they will clamp to the shaft when tightened against the tapered bore of the driven component. They are constructed of long lasting metals such as for example cast iron and steel. Bushings are found 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 still left on the mating surfaces may cause improper installation.
Note: Do not lubricate mating surfaces.
2. Being careful not to damage bore or hubs, slip shaft into pulley.
3. Slide bushings onto shaft and into hubs. Oil thread stage of set screws or thread and under mind of capscrews. Place screws
loosely in the holes that are threaded on the hub side.
4. Locate shaft constantly in place desired and hand 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 very tight. Use a bit of pipe on the wrench to
increase leverage. See table on the back for wrench torque.
Avoid excessive wrench torque to avoid damage to the threads. Then use a hammer against much steel or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer 1st 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. Working toward the split, hammer on bushing on
each side of every screw. Then hammer on each side of the bushing split. Make sure the areas on both sides of the split are actually.
Screws can now be tightened a little more using the specified torque. Continue doing this alternate hammering and screw re-tightening
until the specified wrench torque no more turns the screws after hammering.
Check to make sure the top on both sides of the split are also. Fill the various other holes with grease to exclude dirt.
Taper-Lock bushings are split through the flange and gradual taper to supply a true clamp suit on the shaft that is the exact carbon copy 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 can be found with an optional Diamond D integral key in popular sizes for a more precise fit.
Stock sizes obtainable up to 12” shaft diameter
Worldwide acceptance and availability inch and metric bores
Flush Mounting-No Protruding Parts
Diamond D Integral Essential for Added Value and Convenience
Materials obtainable in sintered steel, cast iron, ductile iron, steel and stainless
L – Space required 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 required hub diameter can be for reference only. Severe conditions may require larger hub and in some instances a slightly smaller hub may be satisfactory. Inquire about specific application.
Make use of a tapered or QD bushing from Ever-Power with sheaves, pulleys, sprockets and many other power tranny applications. Flanged quick-disconnect bushings feature a completely split style to help provide easy set up and disassembly. A tapered bushing with straight edges uses an internal screw to greatly help drive the bushing into the shaft, while a split taper has a flange and a key on the bushing to greatly help provide more drive.

The Taper-Lock bushing size is defiined by 4 digits representing two numbers. The first two digits represent the utmost bore size and the second two digits represent the bushing duration. For example, product number 1008 includes a max bore of just one 1.0″ and a complete length of 0.8″
Inch bore sizes are designated with the complete inch accompanied by the fraction. For example a 1.5″ diameter bore would be 1-1/2. Metric bore sizes are designated 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 made of steel and come with a black oxide coating.
Gates Taper-Lock bushings are accustomed to attach pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The long lasting stainless construction is perfect for meals and beverage applications or where non-corrosive sprockets are needed to prevent rust.
