Dexter axles putting them on facing correctly

I have had my old axels off for awhile. Does anybody have a picture of the correct way those new dexters axels I bought should be facing. I do not want to put them on backwards. I need a diagram or photo. I don't want to hang them only to have to take them down and turn them around. Your diagarm or picture would really help.

the swingarm faces to the rear (as in the pivot point is at front). From my math elementary school days... the "mouth" faces to the rear (the open angle from the pivot to the wheel drum).
Mount away!

The Trailing Arm must "trail" behind the axle beam. Otherwise I don't think it would survive the first pot hole.

I thought you were going to install these "one at a time" which means one old axle would still be in place while you installed the first new unit.
Did you change the game plan?

Martin:

Yes I still have an axel on. I guess I worded the orginal post wrong when I posted it. I just want to make sure they both face in the same direction.
