  I had a cracked one and it was $25 to $35 or so to weld.  I doubt it'd be 
more to weld 3 than 4.  No machining required/  :-)  I left him a core 
in case he needed it to hold thread dimension as the piece fell out.  It was 
cracked when I got the head.  Dad kept insisting I just grab a breaker bar 
and reef the injectors out of there.  I ignored him and continued gathering 
the proper socket, hose and the impact wrench and rattled it out.  He 
finally quieted down when I informed him of the damage it would have 
done had I used a breaker bar!
  Impact wrench and penetrant is probably the best way to remove them.  
It doesn't tend to crack the head or break it unless it's already cracked.
  A good welder shouldn't even flinch at fixing it from my experience.  :-)
