    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.

    I bet home depot has somethingin stock that will work. They ahve over 100 washers and spacer in there bins..

    Heck depending on how think it needs to be youcan buy paper Gasket blanks and cut out what you need.

    If i was in LA i would come over and help you out. I have fab up more stuff using Home depot parts than you can shake a stick at...
