AMC 360 Rocker Arm Studs (where to find)

Got the engine back together & in the CJ today (AMC 360), Was adjusting the valve's by tightening the rocker arms.. #1 cylinder exhaust side valve wasn't even moving, so gave the nut a turn & BING! damn stud snapped . Got the stud out, no problems, But I cant seem to find a replacement WITH the nuts included. ( nut is fused to whats left of the stud) As there are a few more that just wont budge to adjust, I figured I would buy a set & replace them all. I have found a few sets online, but none of them include the locking nuts.
My question is...
Anyone know where to buy a set with nuts included? OR would a good ARP locking nut (type with the plastic inserts) work in it's place?
I'm thinking they wont due to heat & oil..
Any leads would be great!


Jeep ľnoun (jēp)
A Four wheel mechanized device surrounded by glass and metal designed for the frequent consumption of the owner/operator's money. Jeeps are also linked to diseases such as Jeep envy which can be diagnosed by unusual urges for items such as bigger tires,lift kits, shocks and AMC 401s. As well as the urge to pour money into more than one Jeep. Side effects may be spouse accruing numerous "honey-do's", as well as trips to inlaws. Grease under your nails, numerous trips to NAPA and junk yards, and spare parts in the attic may indicate an addiction. There are no known cures. However there are support groups such as JeepForum.com
