Question about Mercury Cougar
Do you mean the air intake? If your air intake blows and the motor doesn't run it may mean your valve timing is wrong. How did you set your valve timing after you took off the head? If you weren't careful you may have set the timing for number 1 cylinder on its exhaust stroke and not its power stroke. This will put your timing 360 degrees out.
Incorrect valve timing may produce the effect that the engine pumps air out of its intake when it is cranked.
