you got a small telescoping magnets?? if not, get someone to grab you one at autozone, and fish around with it. the magnet should catch it if its still there.

I hate when that happens man. Not sure if this helps but could you make a temporary washer out of plastic? How big of a washer are we talking? Dime size, quarter? Could use a drill to make the middle and cut/shape the rest?
Possibly make ne out of rubber? Just to get it back together and get you going.
