Measure the valves -- if they are undersized, get undersized guides if you want to keep them. Usually, on MB engines, you are best off to just replace with standard guides. The valve stems normally don't wear much.

Do take a look at the valves themselves, though. If they will be near the wear limit when ground, get new ones, they aren't that expensive.
