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

There may be a slight leak within the suction piping, just enough to allow air to enter as its sits for an extended time. I'd be ceratin the foot valve is good and check over all of my suction pipe connections.
I hope this may have helped,

Testimonial: "That was exactly the problem, the pressure switch had to be replaced and it now works fine"

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.
