If you are resealing the lift piston there's really no need to remove the side cover. Removing that round cover and looking inside for dripping is a test we recommend to determine how badly your lift piston is leaking.
In your case, since you have to pull the top cover anyway to replace your pin there is no reason to do this test. Just replace the piston seals, cam follower pin and readjust your linkages by the book and you will be good.
