New well pump no pressure

I have a new 1 1/2 hp pump with new control box, pressure switch, float, wiring, and piping and everything. Only thing not new is the tank which is an old bladderless tank. My pump is 140ft down. It will pump water but with no pressure and I am not sure what to look at from here. I have voltage everywhere i should and amps to the pump at 11a, 11a, and 1.3a. I cannot figure out why I am not getting pressure and would appreciate any input. Thanks

What is the float you mentioned?

You keep saying you are not getting pressure. Are you getting any water or are you getting nothing?

The 11 amps for each hot leg is about what you'd expect for a 1 1/2hp motor running. Have you looked for leaks or a plumbing problem?
