taper lock bushing

Bushings are made to precise tolerances.
Provides excellent clamping power for secure shaft connection.
Obtainable in popular and regular bore sizes.
Stainless steel bushings are corrosion resistant, preventing rust buildup to improve 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 utilized for mounting 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 tight 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 prevent the shaft from rotating in the bushing, and 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 used to mount pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other components to drive shafts for the transmitting of mechanical power. Many 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 found in automobiles, construction apparatus, and machine tools, amongst others. Ever-Power’s manufactures bushings, pulleys, couplings, and electronic engine 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 not to damage 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 hands tighten screws in each bushing slightly to ensure 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 table on the back for wrench torque.
Avoid excessive wrench torque to avoid damage to the threads. After that make use of a hammer against much metal or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer first 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. Working 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 areas on both sides of the split are also.
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 longer turns the screws after hammering.
Check to make sure 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 provide a true clamp fit on the shaft that is the exact carbon copy 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 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 more precise fit.
Stock sizes available 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 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 brief hex key.
M – Space required to remove bushing using screws as jackscrews – brief hex key – no puller reuired.
Listed required hub diameter is usually for reference only. Severe conditions may require larger hub and in some instances a slightly smaller hub could be satisfactory. Inquire about particular application.
Make use of 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 style to greatly help provide easy set up and disassembly. A tapered bushing with straight edges uses an internal 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 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 length. For example, product number 1008 has a max bore of 1 1.0″ and a total amount of 0.8″
Inch bore sizes are designated with the whole inch followed 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 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 have a black oxide coating.
Gates Taper-Lock bushings are used to mount pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The durable stainless construction is perfect for food and beverage applications or where non-corrosive sprockets are needed to prevent rust.
