    First thing to try is to adapt a slide hammer to screw onto the top. You may have to sacrifice an injection line for the the fitting if you can't find a nut with a suitable thread.
    What you don't want to do is go too crazy trying to twist the injector in the head.

    Try some carburetor cleaner. It may be carbon in the combustion chamber sticking it in there. The carb cleaner will do a better job on carbon that penetrating oil will.
