Stainless bushings are corrosion resistant, avoiding rust buildup to increase product life.
This Ever-Power’s size 3030 taper lock bushing with a torque capacity of 24000 in-lbs is constructed of steel and is used for installation a taper lock pulley, sheave, or sprocket on a drive shaft. It really 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 is keyed to the shaft to avoid the shaft from rotating in the bushing, and it is interchangeable with taper lock bushings from various producers. This taper lock bushing can be used in automobiles, construction equipment, agricultural machinery, and kitchen appliances, among others. Bushings are cylindrical parts utilized to install pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other elements to drive shafts for the tranny of mechanical power. Most bushings are split and have a tapered outside surface area so they’ll clamp to the shaft when tightened against the tapered bore of the powered component. They are made of durable metals such as cast iron and steel. Bushings are used in automobiles, construction apparatus, 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 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, slide shaft into pulley.
3. Slide bushings onto shaft and into hubs. Oil thread stage of set 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 hand tighten screws in each bushing somewhat so that bushings are snug in hubs.
5. Tighten screws alternately and evenly in one bushing only 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 prevent harm to the threads. Then make use of a hammer against a heavy metal or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer first beside the screw farthest from the bushing split and then hammer on the bushing reverse side of
the screw. Avoid hammering close to the OD of the bushing to avoid damage. Operating toward the split, hammer on bushing on
each side of every screw. After that hammer on each part of the bushing split. Make certain the surfaces on both sides of the split are actually.
Screws is now able to be tightened a bit more using the specified torque. Continue doing this alternate hammering and screw re-tightening
until the specified wrench torque no longer turns the screws after hammering.
Check to ensure the top on both sides of the split are actually. Fill the additional holes with grease to exclude dirt.

Taper-Lock bushings are split through the flange and gradual taper to provide a true clamp match on the shaft that is the equivalent of a shrink fit.
Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are flangeless for clean, small application. They are manufactured with an 8° taper and a flush-mounted design without protruding parts providing protected 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
Globally acceptance and availability inch and metric bores
Flush Mounting-No Protruding Parts
Diamond D Integral Crucial for Added Value and Convenience
Materials available 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 – short hex key – no puller reuired.
Listed necessary hub diameter is certainly for reference only. Severe conditions may necessitate bigger hub and in some cases 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 transmission applications. Flanged quick-disconnect bushings feature a completely split design to greatly help provide easy installation and disassembly. A tapered bushing with directly edges uses an internal screw to greatly help drive the bushing in to the shaft, while a split taper includes a flange and an integral on the bushing to 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 utmost bore size and the second two digits represent the bushing length. For instance, product number 1008 includes a max bore of 1 1.0″ and a complete amount of 0.8″
Inch bore sizes are specified with the whole inch followed 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 accustomed to attach pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The durable stainless steel construction is well suited for food and beverage applications or where noncorrosive sprockets are had a need to prevent rust.
