dumb question! fuel manifold tube pulled out

I was replacing the lift pump on my early 97 f350 with 7.3. There is a tube that goes from the bottom of the filter housing to the fuel control manifold. I believe this tube is supposed to be permanently attached to a disk which comes out when you remove a snap ring from the bottom side. I didn't remove the snap ring the tube just came out. What can I do to fix it

By the looks of the picture you are refering to the pipe pulling out of the regulator and not the bottom of the bowl. Guess what no worries. thats normal (there is no snap ring) just make sure the o-ring up inside the regulator is good to go. put it back on there put those two 10mm bolts back on and you're good to go. Also make sure the o-ring is on the little tiny outlet (goes from the regulator to the side of the bowl) with the little screen on it. and you'll be up and running in no time.
