    Magnets down the tube and up the drain didn't help. Neither did compressed air. Got a nice magnet from a hard drive on the sump and am driving. Fingers crossed. Thanks guys!
    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929
