I know it doesn't help with the OP problem as he fixed it but I bought an endoscope for less than $10 to plugs into my phone and works great. If you attach it to the magnet/grabber you can see to guide it where you need it.

Any chance someone has a part number for the full circle tool?

OTC 6616

That's the one I used. It's great. It also screws into all three holes on the water pump gear, whereas the half-moon tool uses two. I like to plan for things going sideways. Belt + suspenders.

If you wind up using the half-moon tool, it might make more sense to put it upside down - covering the top of the hole instead of the bottom - as that feels like it might be better at preventing things from falling in.

Or, just spend the extra $15 and cover the whole thing up.
