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 constructed of steel and is used for mounting a taper lock pulley, sheave, or sprocket on a drive shaft. It is flush mounted for reduced mounting width and has a split taper for a good clamp to shafts. The bushing is made of steel for greater power and shock level of resistance than cast iron. It is keyed to the shaft to prevent the shaft from rotating in the bushing, in fact it is interchangeable with taper lock bushings from various manufacturers. This taper lock bushing is utilized in automobiles, construction tools, agricultural machinery, and home appliances, among others. Bushings are cylindrical parts utilized to install pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other parts to operate a vehicle shafts for the transmitting 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 driven component. They are constructed of durable metals such as cast iron and steel. Bushings are found in automobiles, construction products, and machine tools, amongst others. Ever-Power’s manufactures bushings, pulleys, couplings, and electronic engine 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 still left on the mating surfaces could cause improper installation.
Note: Usually 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 mind of capscrews. Place screws
loosely in the holes that are threaded upon the hub side.
4. Locate shaft constantly in place desired and hands 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 very tight. Use a piece of pipe on the wrench to
increase leverage. See desk on the back for wrench torque.
Avoid excessive wrench torque to avoid harm to the threads. Then use a hammer against much steel or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer 1st 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 avoid damage. Operating toward the split, hammer on bushing on
each side of each screw. After that hammer on each part of the bushing split. Make sure the areas on both sides of the split are also.
Screws is now able to be tightened a bit 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 also. Fill the other 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 exact carbon copy 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. Furthermore, Dodge Taper-Lock bushings can be found with an optional Diamond D integral type in well-known 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 obtainable in sintered metal, cast iron, ductile iron, steel and stainless
L – Space necessary 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 needed hub diameter is definitely for reference just. Severe conditions may require larger hub and in some instances a slightly smaller sized hub may be satisfactory. Inquire about specific application.
Make use of a tapered or QD bushing from Ever-Power with sheaves, pulleys, sprockets and many other power tranny applications. Flanged quick-disconnect bushings feature a completely split style to help provide easy set up and disassembly. A tapered bushing with directly edges uses an interior screw to help drive the bushing in to the shaft, while a split taper includes a flange and a key on the bushing to greatly help provide more drive. Grab 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 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 complete inch accompanied by the fraction. For example a 1.5″ diameter bore would be 1-1/2. Metric bore sizes are specified with “MM” following the metric dimension. These bushings are easy to install and remove, these bushings suit 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 used to attach pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The long lasting stainless steel construction is ideal for food and beverage applications or where noncorrosive sprockets are needed to prevent rust.
