The Taper-Lock bushing system keeps the sprocket hubs narrow so the length-thru-bore dimension is significantly less than ever before. 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 supply a true clamp match 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-installed design without protruding parts providing secure locking and elimination of wobble. Furthermore, Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are available with an optional Gemstone D integral key in well-known sizes for a far 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 Important for Added Value and Convenience
Materials available in sintered steel, cast iron, ductile iron, steel and stainless steel
L – Space required 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 necessary 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.
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 greatly 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 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 size. For example, product number 1008 has a max bore of 1 1.0″ and a complete amount of 0.8″
” bore sizes are designated with the complete inch accompanied by the fraction. For instance a 1.5″ diameter bore would be 1-1/2. Metric bore sizes are designated 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 come with a black oxide coating.
Gates Taper-Lock bushings are accustomed to mount pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The durable stainless construction is ideal for food and beverage applications or where noncorrosive 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 made of steel and is used 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 from steel for greater power and shock level of 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 different manufacturers. This taper lock bushing can be used in automobiles, construction tools, agricultural machinery, and home appliances, among others. Bushings are cylindrical parts utilized to mount pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other components to operate a vehicle shafts for the transmission 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 powered component. They are made of long lasting metals such as for example cast iron and steel. Bushings are found in automobiles, construction gear, and machine tools, amongst others. Ever-Power’s manufactures bushings, pulleys, couplings, and electronic 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 material. Any particles still left on the mating surfaces may cause improper installation.
Note: Usually do not lubricate mating surfaces.
2. Being careful not to harm bore or hubs, slide shaft into pulley.
3. Slide bushings onto shaft and into hubs. Oil thread stage 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 hands 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 extremely 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 avoid damage to the threads. Then use a hammer against a heavy steel or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer first 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. Working toward the split, hammer on bushing on
each side of each screw. Then hammer on each side of the bushing split. Make certain the surfaces 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
before specified wrench torque no longer turns the screws after hammering.
Check to make sure the top on both sides of the split are also. Fill the additional 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 small while preventing issues with high overhung loads.
