Hi - unfortunately, putting the tension back together takes alot of training - not only do you have to re-install the parts correctly so the hook is in the correct position and the bobbin is in the correct position when the needle moves down thru the needle plate and into the bobbin case to pull up the bobbin thread. Further, you need to set what called the timing - your needle needs to enter the bobbin dead on center and to a very precise depth. Technicians often use a special tool to set the timing, because each machine has a different a different hook and bobbin case.
I know this won't win me any points, but you will probably need to take the machine to a repair shop to have the hook replaced or reinstalled. If you mechanically inclined, you can search the web for a service manual for your machine - the service manual will illustrate how to replace the hook and specify the timing and needle depth settings.

The smooth rounded tensioner pulley has a 1/2 inch drive recessed
ratchet drive fitting in the outer side of it. Reach down and feel it
with your fingers and insert the ratchet drive into it. Look around the
underside of the hood and engine bay for a small diagram showing the
belt, pulleys and tensioner.
This pulley is either a slider or a spring loaded pulley. If it is a slider, there will be one or two bolts with "slide" areas that the bolt can move through, and possibly a third bolt that controls the tension. If it is a spring loader, there will be a pulley that looks like it is on a lever. There will be a "bolt" type head, a hole for a ratchet, or a square area on the end of the lever to twist it away from the belt. If it is one of these, the belt tensioner will move relatively easy.
