The only place I think you might be able to find just one is if you contact ARP directly, or if someone for some reason removed their studs.

I was going to say just thread it in by hand and use it. But you can snug it up with vice grips if you know how to properly use them..... ive seen sooo much stuff ruined by them. But they always work great for me

Its a stud it will work the same if its threaded in loose or tight

ARP FAQ:

"Do the head studs only go in hand, or finger tight?

Yes, cylinder head studs are installed only hand tight. Other than the use of an allen wrench on the hex broached into the end of the stud (to ease installation, not to apply torque), use no tools to seat them in the block. However, it is extremely important to ensure that the studs are fully bottomed out in the hole in the block and not hung up on damaged or corroded threads in the block preventing the stud from being fully seated. This is often indicated when the stud threads extend past the deck surface."

So if your threads are clean. Should be no issue hand tight. But double nut will work 100000% and probably the best way to make sure any studs are fully seated. Dont crank the studs down just because you can get a wrench or socket on it though.

But with how simple this is most anything would work.
