Stainless bushings are corrosion resistant, preventing 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 utilized for mounting a taper lock pulley, sheave, or sprocket on a drive shaft. It is flush mounted for reduced installation 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 prevent the shaft from rotating in the bushing, and it is interchangeable with taper lock bushings from numerous producers. This taper lock bushing can be used in automobiles, construction equipment, agricultural machinery, and home appliances, among others. Bushings are cylindrical parts utilized to mount pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other parts to operate a vehicle shafts for the transmission of mechanical power. Most 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 steel. Bushings are used in automobiles, construction equipment, and machine tools, among 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 materials. Any particles remaining on the mating areas may cause improper installation.
Note: Do not lubricate mating surfaces.
2. Being careful never to damage bore or hubs, slide shaft into pulley.
3. Slide bushings onto shaft and into hubs. Oil thread stage of arranged screws or thread and under mind of capscrews. Place screws
loosely in the holes that are threaded upon the hub side.
4. Locate shaft in position desired and hand tighten screws in each bushing somewhat 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 piece of pipe on the wrench to
increase leverage. See desk on the back for wrench torque.
Avoid extreme wrench torque to prevent damage to the threads. After that use a hammer against much metal or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer initial next to the screw farthest from the bushing split and then hammer on the bushing opposing side of
the screw. Avoid hammering close 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 sure the areas on both sides of the split are even.
Screws is now able to 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 make sure 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 match on the shaft that 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-mounted design without protruding parts providing protected locking and elimination of wobble. Furthermore, Dodge Taper-Lock bushings can be found with an optional Gemstone D integral key in popular sizes for a far 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 Value and Convenience
Materials obtainable in sintered metal, cast iron, ductile iron, steel and stainless steel
L – Space required to tighten bushing or loosen to eliminate 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 is for reference just. Severe conditions may require bigger hub and in some cases a slightly smaller hub could be satisfactory. Inquire about specific 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 include a completely split design to greatly help provide easy installation 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 a key on the bushing to greatly help provide more drive. Pick up 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 1st two digits represent the maximum bore size and the second two digits represent the bushing duration. For example, product number 1008 has a max bore of 1 1.0″ and a total amount of 0.8″
” bore sizes are specified with the complete inch followed by the fraction. For example a 1.5″ diameter bore will 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 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 mount pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The long lasting stainless steel construction is ideal for meals and beverage applications or where noncorrosive sprockets are needed to prevent rust.
