Dropped clip into intake port

OK so short story shorter,

Was doing oil cooler change, dropped a clip into the second or third intake port on drivers side. Tried magnet, can't see the clip.

What do I need to do to get it out? I took valve cover off already but I didn't want to go further yet

Pretty sure it is in the third from the drivers side front. I'm afraid if I try to get it it will push it deeper.

yea if it fell in you need to get it out that may mean pulling the head.

If you dropped one of those injector clips down into an intake port, and was able to fish it out... Go buy a lottery ticket. Then when you get back to the truck, cover those damn ports!

Made a long hook out of welding wire and tried "one last time" whats the worst that can happen at this point? Scooped and pulled slowly and out it came.
