I just bolted my head down with a new MLS gasket.

I just about had it all put together when I believe I dropped a turbo clamp nut down the damn intake port on the head. I've tried vacuuming it out and a flex magnet and nothing. I can't find the nut anywhere on the motor or on the floor of the garage. I don't want to crank this thing and have sparks fly. My question is... can I remove the head and look for the friggin nut and then seal it back up with the same gasket. Since I haven't run the motor with it yet? Pleease help, I'm pretty effin depressed right about now.
