Default Metal fell in engine, 502 low oil pressure switch help!!!

Hi everyone need some assistance please, 1995 Gen V 502 mag mpi, Long story short, I installed the bell housing, then went to mount the heat exchanger with out looking what was behind it thinking i had a plenty small bolt, which proceded to snap off the oil pressure switch. while trying to remove the broken brass i may have dropped a piece of brass down there, i tried to remove it with grease and a screwdriver to no avail, im curios to where that passage leads or what to do next, thanks for your time

Before installing new sending unit , remove distributor and prime oil system. This should clear passage. Good luck!!!

Thanks for the reply, the engine currently doesn't have any oil in it, so i should fill it, turn oil pump over by hand, then drain and inspect for the debris? thanks
