Bushings are made to precise tolerances.
Provides excellent clamping pressure for secure shaft connection.
Available in popular and standard bore sizes.
Stainless steel 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 made from steel and can be used for installation 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 from steel for greater power and shock level of resistance than cast iron. It really is keyed to the shaft to avoid the shaft from rotating in the bushing, and it is interchangeable with taper lock bushings from numerous producers. This taper lock bushing is utilized in automobiles, construction gear, agricultural machinery, and kitchen appliances, among others. Bushings are cylindrical parts used to install pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other components to operate a vehicle shafts for the tranny of mechanical power. The majority of bushings are split and also have a tapered outside surface so they’ll clamp to the shaft when tightened against the tapered bore of the powered component. They are constructed of long lasting metals such as cast iron and metal. Bushings are used in automobiles, construction equipment, and machine tools, amongst others. Ever-Power’s manufactures bushings, pulleys, couplings, and electronic motor controls.
1. Before setting up 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 material. Any particles still left on the mating surfaces could cause improper installation.
Note: Usually do not lubricate mating surfaces.
2. Being careful not to damage 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 constantly in place desired and hands tighten screws in each bushing somewhat to ensure that bushings are snug in hubs.
5. Tighten screws alternately and evenly in one bushing just until all screws are extremely tight. Use a bit 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 a heavy metal or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer 1st beside the screw farthest from the bushing split and hammer on the bushing opposing side of
the screw. Avoid hammering close 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 sure the areas on both sides of the split are actually.
Screws can now be tightened a little more using the specified torque. Repeat this alternate hammering and screw re-tightening
until the specified wrench torque no longer turns the screws after hammering.
Check to ensure the surface on both sides of the split are also. Fill the other holes with grease to exclude dirt.
Taper-Lock bushings are split through the flange and gradual taper to supply a true clamp fit 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 without protruding parts providing protected locking and elimination of wobble. In addition, Dodge Taper-Lock bushings can be found with an optional Diamond D integral type in well-known sizes for a more precise fit.
Stock sizes available up to 12” shaft diameter
Globally acceptance and availability inch and metric bores
Flush Mounting-No Protruding Parts
Diamond D Integral Key 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 eliminate hub with puller using brief hex key.
M – Space required to remove bushing using screws as jackscrews – brief hex key – no puller reuired.
Listed needed hub diameter can be 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.
Use a tapered or QD bushing from Ever-Power with sheaves, pulleys, sprockets and several other power tranny applications. Flanged quick-disconnect bushings feature a completely split style to greatly help provide easy installation 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 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 maximum bore size and the second two digits represent the bushing size. For instance, product number 1008 has a max bore of just one 1.0″ and a total amount of 0.8″
Inch bore sizes are specified with the whole inch accompanied by the fraction. For example 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 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 used to attach pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The long lasting stainless construction is perfect for food and beverage applications or where non-corrosive sprockets are needed to prevent rust.
