Our immediate supply chain to Martin Sprockets factories gets a wider selection of QD Bushings delivered at the right time at the right price.
Taper bushing are widely used together with sprockets, v-belt pulleys, timing pulleys, coupling and other mechanical parts with taper bore connections.
Taper bushing series are made of high quality engineered materials with great tolerance. The feature is usually easy to use and needs no extra alteration. These bushings can suit almost all types of assemblies and sizes. They will be the best choice in design for mechanical connections.
No costly re-boring: full selection of both metric and imperial available.
Standard range suits up to 125mm/5″ shafts & Hub diameter required depends on the application.
Complete brief reach range available, for compact light-weight assemblies & Clean, Compact Design.
Ease of installation and removal.

The initial sheave and pulley mounting system developed to facilitate installation and replacement of components.
The QD (Quick Detachable) design provides for both conventional (flange outboard) and invert (flange inboard) installation configurations.
1. Be certain the tapered cone areas of the bushing and the within of the driven item are clean and free from anti-seize lubricants.
2. Slide QD bushing on shaft, flange end initial. Assemble key.
3. Position QD bushing on shaft. Tighten arranged screw over key “hand tight” with regular Allen wrench only. Usually do not use excessive force.
4. Slide huge end of sheave or sprocket taper bore into placement over cone aligning drilled bolt holes in sheave or sprocket with tapped holes in flange of bushing. Assemble pull-up bolts and lock washers.
NOTE: Install M thru S bushings in the hub to ensure that the two extra holes in the hub are located as far as feasible from the bushing’s noticed cut.
5. Tighten pull-up bolts alternately and evenly to tightness indicated in torque table on back. Usually do not make use of extensions on wrench handles. There should be a gap between the encounter of the sheave or sprocket hub and the flange of the QD bushing to insure a reasonable cone grasp and press fit.
CAUTION: THIS GAP MUST NOT BE CLOSED.
Make use of a tapered or QD bushing from Ever-Power with sheaves, pulleys, sprockets and many other power tranny applications. Flanged quick-disconnect bushings include a completely split style to greatly help provide easy set up and disassembly. A tapered bushing with directly edges uses an internal screw to greatly help drive the bushing in to the shaft, while a split taper includes a flange and a key on the bushing to help provide more drive.
QD bushings (in . and metric sizes) possess a flanged design and feature a 4° taper with conventional or reverse mounting. They are stocked in well-known finished bore sizes and minimum plain bore for custom reboring.
Many people refer to both types as a “taper lock” because they both utilize the tapered wedging action to lock to the shaft. The taper bushing, with it’s straight sides, runs on the set screw to drive the bushing into the bore of the component getting installed (sheave, sprocket, etc.). Be careful when setting up these screws. The holes with threads on the bushing are for removal only. Also be aware that the appearance of a flange on the outside of the bushing doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a QD style. Split Taper bushing also offers a flange, and both aren’t interchangeable. The QD design includes a split that proceeds through the flange. The Steel QD (Quick Disconnect) Type bushing offers flexible and easy installation while providing exceptional holding power. QD Bushings are utilized considered the industry offering comfort and design flexibility. They are precision machined of quality Steel and are installed by tightening a number of cap screws. This draws the bushing into the taper bore of the product which compresses the bore of the bushing. QD bushings are easily removed by using the cap screws as jack-screws. Dual drilled holes are furnished in QD Bushings permitting mounting of product in the traditional or invert positions. This allows cap screws to become installed through item hub or bushing flange whichever is usually most convenient. A substantial benefit in installation, cap screws are often inserted from the outside where they are often accessible. QD Bushings are available from stock with all popular bores within the range of each size bushing.
QD Bushings include a split tapered flange with the split central to the flange and taper. They are used on sprockets, sheaves, and pulleys where more clamping push is necessary over standard bored-to-size bushings. Quick-Disconnect Bushings are crucial for installation v-belt drives, synchronous belt drives and roller chain drives.
