Hi I'm a sucker with tools

Hello. I am looking for information to fix my ex-wife's boyfriend's 87 260e. Yes, it's a long story, but I'm actually friends with my ex now (we have kids together and have put it all past us for them), he's a real good guy, and I have a garage and am decent with tools.

The car has two issues:

1) A bad miss, probably two of the six cylinders. I did plugs and wires etc. I'm pretty sure it's a bad couple of injectors. These are CIS motors, do I have to rebuild the whole central pump/nozzle thing, or can I replace the nozzles in the head? I've done some of this on a couple audi's, so I'm not totally ignorant.

2) Transmission is out - goes in reverse but not forward. Do these interchange with any others? Any good sources for used takeouts? I'm in Bremerton, which is west of Seattle. Thanks, guys!
