The Taper-Lock bushing system keeps the sprocket hubs narrow so the length-thru-bore dimension is less than in the past. The left-justified hub style allows shaft mounting close to bearings, keeping the guts of load dimension small while preventing problems with high overhung loads.
Taper-Lock bushings are split through the flange and gradual taper to supply a true clamp fit on the shaft that is the equivalent of a shrink fit.
Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are flangeless for clean, compact application. They are manufactured with an 8° taper and a flush-installed design with no protruding parts providing secure locking and elimination of wobble. In addition, Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are available with an optional Diamond D integral type in popular sizes for a more precise fit.
Stock sizes available up to 12” shaft diameter
Worldwide acceptance and availability inch and metric bores
Flush Mounting-No Protruding Parts
Diamond D Integral Key for Added Value and Convenience
Materials obtainable in sintered metal, cast iron, ductile iron, steel and stainless steel
L – Space necessary to tighten bushing or loosen to eliminate hub with puller using brief hex key.
M – Space required to remove bushing using screws as jackscrews – short hex key – no puller reuired.
Listed required hub diameter is for reference just. Severe conditions may necessitate bigger hub and in some cases a slightly smaller hub may be satisfactory. Inquire about particular application.
Use 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 design to help provide easy set up and disassembly. A tapered bushing with directly edges uses an internal screw to help drive the bushing in to the shaft, while a split taper has a flange and an integral on the bushing to help provide more drive.

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 just one 1.0″ and a total amount of 0.8″
In . bore sizes are specified with the complete inch followed by the fraction. For example 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 fit 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 constructed with 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 construction is perfect for food and beverage applications or where non-corrosive sprockets are needed to prevent rust.
Bushings are made to precise tolerances.
Provides excellent clamping push for secure shaft connection.
Available in popular and standard bore sizes.
Stainless bushings are corrosion resistant, stopping 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 can be used for installation a taper lock pulley, sheave, or sprocket on a drive shaft. It really is flush installed for reduced mounting width and includes a split taper for a good clamp to shafts. The bushing is constructed of steel for greater power and shock level of 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 numerous manufacturers. This taper lock bushing can be used in automobiles, construction devices, agricultural machinery, and home appliances, amongst others. Bushings are cylindrical parts utilized to mount pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other components to operate a vehicle shafts for the transmitting of mechanical power. Many bushings are split and have a tapered outside surface area so they will clamp to the shaft when tightened against the tapered bore of the driven component. They are constructed of long lasting metals such as for example cast iron and metal. Bushings are found in automobiles, construction gear, and machine tools, amongst 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 material. Any particles remaining on the mating areas 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 point of arranged screws or thread and under head of capscrews. Place screws
loosely in the holes that are threaded on the hub side.
4. Locate shaft constantly in place desired and hands tighten screws in each bushing slightly so that bushings are snug in hubs.
5. Tighten screws alternately and evenly in one bushing only until all screws are very tight. Use a bit of pipe on the wrench to
increase leverage. See table on the back for wrench torque.
Avoid excessive wrench torque to prevent damage to the threads. Then make use of a hammer against much steel or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer 1st next to the screw farthest from the bushing split and hammer on the bushing opposite side of
the screw. Avoid hammering close 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 aspect of the bushing split. Make sure the surfaces on both sides of the split are even.
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 also. Fill the various other holes with grease to exclude dirt.
The Taper-Lock bushing system keeps the sprocket hubs narrow so 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 little while preventing issues with high overhung loads.
