Backing Plate on '56 E12

I bought a 1956 3/4tn and am tearing it down for restoration. I've gotten the rear wheel/hub/brakes removed but can't figure out the backing plate. It looks like dowels that are holding it in place. I looked through the parts catalog, and can't find any reference to how these backing plates are attached.

Any help you all can give is apprecited!
Thanks, Ken Lanford

The parts book provides the answer. Originally the backing plates were riveted to the housing. To replace a plate you are instructed to also buy 4 'special' bolts (shouldered maybe?) nuts and washers.

Removing the rivets is a huge PITA. I started with an air chisel, but ended doing them Wheelbarrow Johnny fashion, with a big cold chisel and a hand sledge.
