Default Air and water comes out of the pump

We have a Gould's SJ10. It stopped working so we replaced the barring and seal. It works now but air comes out with a Lil water. We put it in a tub of water and worked fine but not on the pipe to the well? Please help.

I would say either a suction leak or the foot valve is stuck closed.

Was the seal leaking?
