I don't remember if the sprocket slips through the head. I think it does so zip tie the chain to the sprocket and let it drop into the engine. It won't go far. In fact the chain can drop into the engine without the sprocket and it won't go far. It can't come off the IP or crank sprocket during head removal.

Use only MB dealer quality valve stem seals! They're so deep in the lifter valleys which absolutely, possitively shouldn't be scratched that it's a tedious job. If you don't see through the ports traces of oil dripping down the valve stems, I wouldn't touch them.

You can throw in a fresh set of lifters. While-you're-in-there's will eat you alive.

Does $700 for some injectors (bosch made garbage, not bosio) and a compression test seem...steep?

You can get injectors and heat shields from FastLane for $324, and a cheapo Harbor Freight Diesel compression tester for $25. Factor a deep 27mm socket and torque wrench if you don't have them, some injector line clips that are missing or you'll break...

My guess is the shop figures 3 hours in labor at typical non-Bay Area rates.

The tech won't get rich off you but there should be a net profit in the deal.
