This is a big red flag to me. Are these diesel shops or not? The only time I have heard of a professional turning down work is if they don't know how to do the job or the customer is a known dick and they are sick of dealing with him. You're putting yourself in in a very bad position financially if you are not a professional mechanic, especially if it is his work vehicle. Worst case is the engine being hydrolocked and being sued for a 2014 F450 and loss of income for his business.
BTW, this is not saying you are not capable of doing the job, it is just the story sounds fishy and the fact it is a work vehicle. From a liability standpoint I would walk away.
Very good points. It's not common for a shop to turn down a task as simple as an injector change. I mean, I haven't changed an injector yet, but there is a plethora of stories of guys doing so on the side of the freeway, so it can't be that complicated.
