I have a '83 300SD and I need to find out how much is reasonable for a valve adjustment. I have done this on older Detroit Diesels, but time is a factor for me so I'll have it done. Thanks

Without having the labor rate guide in front of me I would say 1 to 1.5 hours at the shops designated labor rate plus a valve cover gasket.

I just paid $65 for a valve job last week at the MB dealer. The car still ran bad after so I checked the valves yesterday and the exhaust valves were gapped too wide. I'd do it myself if possible.
