Issues with New Shallow Well Setup

I have a well about 60 foot and will not draw water . The system is probably 30 years old .About 2 years ago I replaced the motor bearings and seal When reinstalled I can prime and it will hold the prime but once I open the faucet the pump cycles on and empties the system and looses the prime. Thought maybe the foot valve is stuck but wanted advice before pulling up
