IF your guides are completely intact and IF you see no evidence that some chunks of aluminum have parted ways from the timing cover you can get away without pulling the pan - and without cleaning any sludge from it.

Yes, you can get away with not changing the HG, but they do have a service life, and I'd rather replace one on my time table than its time table.
