The Taper-Lock bushing system keeps the sprocket hubs narrow therefore the length-thru-bore dimension is less than in the past. The left-justified hub design allows shaft mounting near 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 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, small application. They are manufactured with an 8° taper and a flush-mounted design without protruding parts providing secure locking and elimination of wobble. Furthermore, Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are available with an optional Diamond D integral key in well-known sizes for a far more precise fit.
Stock sizes available up to 12” shaft diameter
Worldwide acceptance and availability inch and metric bores
Flush Mounting-No Protruding Parts

L – Space required 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 necessary hub diameter can be for reference just. Severe conditions may require larger hub and in some cases a slightly smaller hub may 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 help provide easy installation and disassembly. A tapered bushing with directly edges uses an interior 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 greatly help provide more drive. Pick up the tapered and QD bushings you need at Ever-Power!
The Taper-Lock bushing size is defiined by 4 digits representing two numbers. The initial 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 just one 1.0″ and a total amount of 0.8″
In . bore sizes are designated with the complete inch followed 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 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 have 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 well suited for food and beverage applications or where noncorrosive sprockets are had a need to prevent rust.
Bushings are created to precise tolerances.
Provides excellent clamping force for secure shaft connection.
Available in popular and regular bore sizes.
Stainless bushings are corrosion resistant, stopping 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 utilized for installation a taper lock pulley, sheave, or sprocket on a drive shaft. It is flush installed for reduced installation width and has a split taper for a good clamp to shafts. The bushing is made from steel for greater strength and shock resistance than cast iron. It 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 can be used in automobiles, construction gear, agricultural machinery, and kitchen appliances, among others. Bushings are cylindrical parts used to attach pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other components to operate a vehicle shafts for the transmission of mechanical power. Many bushings are split and also have a tapered outside surface so they will clamp to the shaft when tightened against the tapered bore of the powered component. They are made of durable metals such as for example cast iron and metal. Bushings are used in automobiles, construction products, and machine tools, among others. Ever-Power’s manufactures bushings, pulleys, couplings, and electronic electric motor controls.
1. Before installing 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 material. Any particles remaining on the mating surfaces may cause improper installation.
Note: Do not lubricate mating surfaces.
2. Being careful not to harm bore or hubs, slip shaft into pulley.
3. Slide bushings onto shaft and into hubs. Oil thread point of set 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 hand tighten screws in each bushing somewhat so 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 trunk for wrench torque.
Avoid excessive wrench torque to prevent damage to the threads. After that use a hammer against a heavy 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 avoid damage. Operating toward the split, hammer on bushing on
each side of every screw. Then hammer on each side of the bushing split. Make sure the surfaces on both sides of the split are even.
Screws can now be tightened a bit more using the specified torque. Continue doing this alternate hammering and screw re-tightening
before specified wrench torque no more turns the screws after hammering.
Check to make sure the surface on both sides of the split are even. Fill the various other 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 style allows shaft mounting near to bearings, keeping the guts of load dimension small while preventing issues with high overhung loads.
