Thanks for responding.

The manual calls for heat shields...but I'd swear that their were NO heat shields with the original injectors.

Maybe someone got sloppy at MB when the car was built - perhaps the same worker who put 2 shields in with one of your injectors! Or maybe the independent my family used removed the injectors and forgot to put back the heat shields (I've come to realize the more I work on the car that the independent my family used has given new meaning to the term "gerryriggeg").

I put the heat shields in, reassembled everything, and fired the 300D up.

The nailing is gone, the idle is MUCH smoother, and there are no leaks...looks like I did it right!

So, I either have one or two shields with each injector...either way it appears to work.
