No drip tube is needed for the OM60x engines, there are tools which can be used to do this without opening any of the fuel lines. A good indy should be able to do this in less than 2 hours, so I'd say <$200 for labor as a rough estimate. It's possible to eyeball it, you remove the hex plug on the side of the IP, and look for the "tang" inside to be centered in the hole at 14 ATDC. The proper tools get the tang dead center so it's accurate, but you can probably get within a degree or two via the eyeball method (?).

In the photo below, the hex plug is on the left side, the tang should point at the hole on the left side when the crank is at 14 ATDC. I also posted a photo of the correct tool used to set IP timing. It's a huge time saver.
