The studs are considered part of the timing cover hence why they are not sold separately. I have never seen one snap like that. Some force must have been put on it during some kind of servicing as they will never snap just driving the car. Maybe someone hammered them on or had the cover off or the engine lifted for some odd reason and did something to snap them.
About your only choice is to see if you can find a local junkyard with a junk engine they will let you pull the studs out of. If you absolutely cannot find anything locally I could potentially look in my scrap pile as I am sure there is a couple of timing covers in there and pull a few studs out for you and ship them to you.

Hope you have a stud puller when you go to the junk yards. When they sell engines they always ask for cores so hopefully they have some junk motors you can pull them off of. If not, I got you covered just pay shipping.

I'll pull them off tomorrow and PM you. My fiance ships a ton of stuff on ebay everyday so she can drop it at post office.
I also realized that perhaps I never broke one of those studs because I 100% of the time take them off with an impact but the twisting force of a ratchet, if that's what you used, could potentially snap a weakened one.

That sure looks like the part #. If you want me to ship you the used ones I have just PM me with your address but I'm in Michigan so not sure how long before they go to where you are.
