The Taper-Lock bushing system keeps the sprocket hubs narrow therefore the length-thru-bore dimension is less than ever before. The left-justified hub style allows shaft mounting close to bearings, keeping the center of load dimension small while preventing issues with high overhung loads.

Taper-Lock bushings are split through the flange and gradual taper to supply a true clamp match on the shaft this is the equivalent of a shrink fit.
Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are flangeless for clean, small application. They are designed with an 8° taper and a flush-installed design without protruding parts providing protected locking and elimination of wobble. Furthermore, Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are available with an optional Gemstone 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 Essential for Added Worth and Convenience

L – Space necessary to tighten bushing or loosen to eliminate hub with puller using short hex key.
M – Space necessary to remove bushing using screws as jackscrews – short hex key – no puller reuired.
Listed needed hub diameter is certainly for reference only. Severe conditions may necessitate bigger 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 many other power transmission applications. Flanged quick-disconnect bushings feature a completely split style to help provide easy installation and disassembly. A tapered bushing with straight edges uses an interior 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 first two digits represent the utmost bore size and the next two digits represent the bushing length. For instance, product number 1008 includes a max bore of 1 1.0″ and a complete length of 0.8″
Inch bore sizes are designated with the whole inch accompanied by the fraction. For instance a 1.5″ diameter bore will be 1-1/2. Metric bore sizes are specified with “MM” following the metric dimension. These bushings are simple 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 have an 8° taper, are made of steel and come with a black oxide coating.
Gates Taper-Lock bushings are used to install pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The long lasting stainless steel construction is well suited for food and beverage applications or where non-corrosive sprockets are had a need to prevent rust.

Bushings are created to precise tolerances.
Provides excellent clamping push for secure shaft connection.
Available in popular and regular bore sizes.
Stainless bushings are corrosion resistant, avoiding rust buildup to improve product life.
This Ever-Power’s size 3030 taper lock bushing with a torque capacity of 24000 in-lbs is made from steel and is utilized for installation a taper lock pulley, sheave, or sprocket on a drive shaft. It really is flush installed for reduced installation width and has a split taper for a tight clamp to shafts. The bushing is constructed of steel for greater strength and shock resistance than cast iron. It really 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 producers. This taper lock bushing can be used in automobiles, construction tools, agricultural machinery, and kitchen appliances, among others. Bushings are cylindrical parts utilized to install pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other components to operate a vehicle shafts for the transmission of mechanical power. Most bushings are split and have a tapered outside surface 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 metal. Bushings are used in automobiles, construction apparatus, and machine tools, among others. Ever-Power’s manufactures bushings, pulleys, couplings, and electronic electric motor controls.
1. Before setting up 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 areas could cause improper installation.
Note: Usually 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 point of arranged 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 somewhat to ensure that bushings are snug in hubs.
5. Tighten screws alternately and evenly in a single bushing only 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 extreme wrench torque to prevent harm to the threads. After that use a hammer against a heavy 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 avoid damage. Functioning toward the split, hammer on bushing on
each side of each screw. After that hammer on each part of the bushing split. Make certain the surfaces 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 longer turns the screws after hammering.
Check to ensure the surface on both sides of the split are actually. Fill the additional holes with grease to exclude dirt.
The Taper-Lock bushing system keeps the sprocket hubs narrow therefore the length-thru-bore dimension is significantly less than in the past. The left-justified hub design allows shaft mounting close to bearings, keeping the guts of load dimension little while preventing problems with high overhung loads.
