Aloha from the Valley Isle

Hello all you Merc enthusiasts. Thanks for having me..

I live on the island of Maui and drive a '98 E300TD. Well the glow plugs needed to be replaced. Of course the first two were frozen in the head. Why would a manufacturer, especially a German one, install steel threaded components into an Aluminum Head. I drilled them out and was successful with the second but not the first, necessitating a valve job. Does anyone know what the Mercedes Labor Book time is for a Valve Job on this vehicle?

All good things,
