Bushings are created to precise tolerances.
Provides excellent clamping drive for secure shaft connection.
Available in popular and regular 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 is used for mounting a taper lock pulley, sheave, or sprocket on a drive shaft. It really is flush mounted for reduced mounting width and has a split taper for a tight clamp to shafts. The bushing is constructed of steel for greater power and shock 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 numerous producers. This taper lock bushing is utilized in automobiles, construction equipment, agricultural machinery, and kitchen appliances, amongst others. Bushings are cylindrical parts utilized to mount pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other elements to operate a vehicle shafts for the transmitting of mechanical power. Most 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 powered component. They are constructed of long lasting metals such as cast iron and metal. Bushings are used in automobiles, construction products, and machine tools, among others. Ever-Power’s manufactures bushings, pulleys, couplings, and electronic electric motor controls.
1. Before installing the bushing, polish the following 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: Do not lubricate mating surfaces.
2. Being careful never to harm bore or hubs, slip shaft into pulley.
3. Slide bushings onto shaft and into hubs. Oil thread point of established screws or thread and under head of capscrews. Place screws
loosely in the holes that are threaded upon 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 excessive wrench torque to prevent harm to the threads. After that make use of a hammer against a heavy steel or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer 1st next to the screw farthest from the bushing split and hammer on the bushing opposite side of
the screw. Avoid hammering near to the OD of the bushing to prevent 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 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 actually. 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 engineered with an 8° taper and a flush-installed design with no protruding parts providing secure locking and elimination of wobble. Furthermore, Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are available with an optional Diamond D integral key in popular sizes for a far more precise fit.
Stock sizes offered up to 12” shaft diameter
Worldwide acceptance and availability inch and metric bores
Flush Mounting-No Protruding Parts
Diamond D Integral Important for Added Worth and Convenience
Materials available in sintered metal, 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 necessary hub diameter is usually for reference only. Severe conditions may necessitate larger hub and in some cases a slightly smaller sized hub could be satisfactory. Inquire about particular application.
Use a tapered or QD bushing from Ever-Power with sheaves, pulleys, sprockets and many other power tranny applications. Flanged quick-disconnect bushings include a completely split style to help provide easy set up and disassembly. A tapered bushing with straight 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.

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 length. 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 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 specified 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 possess an 8° taper, are made from steel and come with a black oxide coating.
Gates Taper-Lock bushings are used to attach pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The durable stainless steel construction is ideal for meals and beverage applications or where non-corrosive sprockets are had a need to prevent rust.
