I just did mine on my 91 190e 2.6. The spark plug widget was done with epoxy instead of welded (just make sure it's long enough). The valve spring compressor was something like $30 or so, it was the type that grabs the bottom of the spring. The only problem was getting the spark plug wires off, I think it was their first time. I also suggest a magnet to fish the keepers out. Be careful when taking the rockers off, sometimes the hardware will stick to the rocker cause or wetting from the oil and could drop off at an inopertune time. You might also want to change the plugs while the're out.
