Have the same issue with the 1986 190E 2.3-16. Had other problems that caused the rebuilding of the head, but it appears the rough running is a consequence of poor injector spray pattern. Changed the fuel filter, which helped slightly. Will be replacing them in the next few months. When I checked the number one and two units they did not have a spray pattern, it was more like a dribble. Will post the results when the change happens. Jim
