Ditto everything sailingdog says. Change them all, do not weld. Inspect rigging. This is one area of a boat where people can get killed if things go wrong. I have no problem using old rigging if it is inspected. Chain-plates by their very nature are notorious for failing in spots where you can't see them. One failure almost guarantees another is bad.
