Diesel is great for cleaning in there. I use a one gallon pump sprayer and a couple of 5 gallon buckets under the front and rear to catch the drainage. Get a big funnel and make a "filter" out of a paper shop towel and then refill the sprayer from the 5 gallon buckets. Save the dirty diesel and over time the metal bits settle out and then you can use it again when you clean out the next one.
The marking compound for the gear pattern is just thick colored grease that wipes away and reveals the contact area. I think a small tube of artist type oil paint would work. It doesn't take very much.
The shield does go to the inside. Helps keep the grease from migrating away from the bearing when you're plowing with one wheel in the furrow.
I would pull each axle housing off separately for cleaning as a lot of trash can hide up in there. I like to use Permatex Ultra-black silicone for sealing in lieu of gaskets.
