The Taper-Lock bushing system keeps the sprocket hubs narrow so 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 center of load dimension little while preventing issues with high overhung loads.
Taper-Lock bushings are split through the flange and gradual taper to provide a true clamp fit on the shaft this is the equivalent of a shrink fit.
Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are flangeless for clean, compact application. They are designed 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 key 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 Essential for Added Value and Convenience
Materials obtainable in sintered steel, 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 usually for reference only. Severe conditions may require bigger hub and in some cases a slightly smaller sized 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 style to help provide easy set up and disassembly. A tapered bushing with straight edges uses an internal screw to help drive the bushing in to the shaft, while a split taper has a flange and a key 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 next two digits represent the bushing size. For instance, product number 1008 has a max bore of 1 1.0″ and a complete length of 0.8″
Inch bore sizes are designated with the complete inch followed 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 simple to install and remove, these bushings match 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 have a black oxide coating.
Gates Taper-Lock bushings are used to mount pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The durable stainless construction is well suited for food and beverage applications or where non-corrosive sprockets are needed to prevent rust.
Bushings are made to precise tolerances.
Provides excellent clamping power for secure shaft connection.
Available in popular and standard bore sizes.
Stainless steel 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 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 includes a split taper for a tight clamp to shafts. The bushing is made 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 different manufacturers. This taper lock bushing is utilized in automobiles, construction apparatus, agricultural machinery, and kitchen appliances, among others. Bushings are cylindrical parts utilized to mount pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other elements to drive shafts for the transmitting of mechanical power. The majority of bushings are split and have a tapered outside surface so they’ll clamp to the shaft when tightened against the tapered bore of the driven component. They are made of long lasting metals such as cast iron and steel. Bushings are used in automobiles, construction equipment, and machine tools, amongst others. Ever-Power’s manufactures bushings, pulleys, couplings, and electronic electric motor 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 areas may cause improper installation.
Note: Usually do not lubricate mating surfaces.
2. Being careful not to damage 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 head of capscrews. Place screws
loosely in the holes that are threaded on the hub side.
4. Locate shaft constantly in place desired and hand tighten screws in each bushing somewhat to ensure that bushings are snug in hubs.
5. Tighten screws alternately and evenly in a single bushing just 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 extreme wrench torque to prevent harm to the threads. Then make use of a hammer against a heavy steel or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer initial next to the screw farthest from the bushing split and hammer on the bushing reverse 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 each screw. Then hammer on each aspect of the bushing split. Make sure the areas 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 ensure the surface on both sides of the split are also. Fill the additional holes with grease to exclude dirt.
