For the heater core, search for the evaporator replacement.
I recall book time is 20+ hours. It took me a couple of weekends to do the one in our 95 E320 wagon.

What do you expect from something that is buried deep beneath the dash and is never really meant to be serviced except maybe once every 20 years?

Head gasket, just guessing, is around 8-12 hours if you don't get the head rebuilt/skimmed.

I've done the heater+evaporator....20hours sounds about right. But half of that time is spent doing the actual heater box itself. About 5hrs to get there and 5hrs putting it back together.

It IS however very straight forward with no special tools needed. Just take note on the order, and bag everything and its honestly looks 10x worse than it is -- it is just time consuming.

If it's any consolation, I found the W124 easier than the W126.
I know I spent more time on the 560SEL evapectomy.
