Bushings are created to precise tolerances.
Provides excellent clamping power for secure shaft connection.
Available in popular and regular bore sizes.
Stainless bushings are corrosion resistant, avoiding 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 of steel and is used for installation a taper lock pulley, sheave, or sprocket on a drive shaft. It is flush mounted for reduced installation width and has 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 really is keyed to the shaft to avoid the shaft from rotating in the bushing, and it is interchangeable with taper lock bushings from different producers. This taper lock bushing is used in automobiles, construction tools, agricultural machinery, and home appliances, among others. Bushings are cylindrical parts used to mount pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other parts 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 powered component. They are made of long lasting metals such as for example cast iron and steel. Bushings are used in automobiles, construction equipment, and machine tools, amongst others. Ever-Power’s manufactures bushings, pulleys, couplings, and electronic electric 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 materials. Any particles remaining on the mating surfaces could cause improper installation.
Note: 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 stage of established screws or thread and under mind of capscrews. Place screws
loosely in the holes that are threaded on the hub side.
4. Locate shaft in position desired and hand tighten screws in each bushing slightly to ensure 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 bit of pipe on the wrench to
increase leverage. See table on the back for wrench torque.
Avoid extreme wrench torque to avoid harm to the threads. Then make use of a hammer against a heavy steel or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer initial 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 side of the bushing split. Make sure the surfaces on both sides of the split are also.
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 more turns the screws after hammering.
Check to ensure the surface on both sides of the split are even. Fill the additional 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 equivalent of a shrink fit.
Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are flangeless for clean, compact application. They are designed with an 8° taper and a flush-installed design without protruding parts providing protected locking and elimination of wobble. Furthermore, Dodge Taper-Lock bushings can be found with an optional Diamond D integral type in popular sizes for a more precise fit.
Stock sizes obtainable up to 12” shaft diameter
Globally acceptance and availability inch and metric bores
Flush Mounting-No Protruding Parts
Diamond D Integral Essential for Added Worth and Convenience
Materials obtainable in sintered steel, cast iron, ductile iron, steel and stainless steel
L – Space required to tighten bushing or loosen to remove hub with puller using brief hex key.
M – Space necessary to remove bushing using screws as jackscrews – short hex key – no puller reuired.
Listed necessary hub diameter can be for reference only. Severe conditions may require 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 many other power transmitting 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 interior screw to greatly help drive the bushing in to the shaft, while a split taper has 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 second two digits represent the bushing duration. For instance, product number 1008 has a max bore of 1 1.0″ and a total amount of 0.8″
” bore sizes are designated with the whole inch accompanied by the fraction. For example a 1.5″ diameter bore would be 1-1/2. Metric bore sizes are specified with “MM” after the metric dimension. These bushings are simple 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 of steel and come with a black oxide coating.
Gates Taper-Lock bushings are accustomed to install pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The long lasting stainless construction is well suited for meals and beverage applications or where non-corrosive sprockets are needed to prevent rust.
