Leaking coolant after egr delete

Ok guys I just fiinished putting my truck all back together and when I filled the truck with water It came spewing out from under the intake up near the pulleys.
After an hour of cursing i look down to find a big thick O-ring that dropped down on a pulley. I think its from the outlet on the top of the water pump housing. My question is can i loosen the intake and lift it up without removing the turbo again so i can slide this O-ring under

I think you'd rather know that it was seated properly than guess and discover it hadn't. Probably faster in the long run to disassemble once than try to do it wrong twice. I don't know for certain but as you've pressed for a guess, my guess is "No. The tolerance is lower than what is needed to get the o-ring in position."
