As I understand it, the holes in the Dexter should line up with the axle mounting plate.
If they do not, then raise the axle in place, drill 3 each 1/2 inch holes, thru the axle mounting bracket and thru the axle mounting plate. Duplicate that for the other side.
Install the 1/2 inch grade 8 hardware, that should of been supplied, along with installation instructions from whoever you purchased the axle from.
