The tank is an air tank, it works like a cushon and accumulator.
Have you reconnceted the pump? If not fill the pipe that goes to the well with water. It should not drain down, there should be a foot valve that prevents the water from running back into the well. So if the foot valve is working it should not take a lot of water to do this.
Pour water into the suction side of the pump until the pump is as full as you can get it, reconnect the pump and start it up. Yes it does need to be primed

SOURCE: why wont my Jet pump shut off?
Is the little pipe that connects to the pressure switch clear?
I suggest you remove it and blow through it to make sure it is clear. If the pressure is getting to the switch, it has to shut off ... your switch should be set around 30/50 (on at 30 - off at 50)

on the pressure switch are the points closed if not its not asking for water.that flat plat under the two screws with springs on them,push down on the plate that will close the points then figure out why its not closing

Testimonial: "That was exactly the problem, the pressure switch had to be replaced and it now works fine"
SOURCE: shallow well pump every two
You should have a check valve installed on the incoming water line ( suction line) of the pump. This should keep the water from leavin the pump. if you still need to prime then there is a leak on the incoming line from the ground to the pump and you will need to have a well company come out and install a new line.

I don't think the power shortage had anything to do with the pump, I think it is the impeller or a gasket, or both. It is hard to say, a pump like that should **** dry and pull water right in.If you put your hand over the end of the pipe, it should make a mark like an octopus on your hand. I would take off the impeller, look for trouble, and replace 3 or 4 parts in there , you should have water. Hope this helps.
