1980 300D Glow Plugs

I've got new glow plugs to install in my 1980 300D, and I'm looking for someone who's BTDT and can tell me the easiest way to access the plugs. The metal fuel injection lines are in the way, and I'm starting to think I'll have to wrnech the plugs out one flat at a time with an open 12 mm. Any better ideas??

I would pull the injector lines off. Much faster

Thanks, jb mills. I probably should do that anyway because I've got a couple that are leaking injector seals and the best attack would be to change the seals, glow plugs, and adjust the valves all in one swell foop.
