Unless you think you might enjoy doing it again, I would order a complete new set and change them all.

Well the thing is this is the side that was not blown. The first side that was 
blown torqued down fine. I will just order 3 more and replace them.

Kaeleb,

Since the original issue was a blown head gasket, it seem most likely that
all the studs were way over torqued to failure on last assembly.

I make the suggestion that you replace the full set and start with "first
stretch".

So if you recall I broke a head stud on the head gasket job in this
Koehler lawn mower engine. Got the new stud in and the 2 guide pins that
sit around the stud in the block. I think last time the head was on
cockeyed on the pins because they were both bent. Anyway I double and
tripled checked to make sore head was on them straight and flush with the
block. First torque setting is something like 16nm, then next stage is 35.5
or 300something inch pounds. First one in the 2nd stage snapped. Wtf? Now I
got to spend more money getting another one. I triple checked the torque
wrench. I don't get it. I knew I should have ordered more than 1 head stud.
What a pain in the rear.
