I have a 1973 Dodge Charger se with the 440 4 barrel.
Today while changing the fuel pump I did something idiotic.  I was using a very small, thin wrench to hold the push pin up in order to position the pump lever appropriately when placing the new pump. I lost my grip and the wrench fell into the block. I have tried to retrieve it via a magnetic rod, but have been unsuccessful. 
1) any ideas for retrieval ?
2) am I overreacting and just replace the pump and keep going ?
