1993 Head gasket repair

So the story goes I am changing the head gasket on my 1993 Cherokee. Has never been changed before. Things went smoothly cleaned off all the old gasket and placed the new gasket on. Used orginal head bolts because never changed before. Torqued to specs. Putting on the exhaust and intake manifolds and a part dropped down a hole for the push rod (I know it should have been covered). I have been trying to fish it out with a magnet but no luck. If I have to take the head off again to get it out can I use the same gasket and head bolts because I have not done anything else.

Me I'd replace them, cheap insurance. Would you want to do the job twice?
If its stock it sucks and if it scares the hell outta ya its just about right!
