Hose on QEV too short?

I recently installed a QEV on my gun about 2 weeks ago, and I test fired it to get the dwell about right... It was working at about 15. Yesterday I take apart my gun to install my new trigger, and I go ahead and lube it up... When I was putting it back together I noticed that it looked like the hose to my QEV was a little long, so I cut it. It seemed to be the perfect length. I put it all back together and go to shoot it today, and it wont work unless my dwell is at almost 30...
I also unscrewed the silver part that the hose goes into off the brass part and put it on the other side so it would line up right when it was hand tight.


Forgot to mention that it will also fire one shot before it does the "puff" sound when my dwell is below 30.

Could either of these things i've listed be it, or am I on the completely wrong track... (Another part of the gun causing it... Etc)
All help is wanted
Thanks

thats the thing... Im not the best at stuff like that and I don't know exactly where the other end of the hose goes to... (Don't want to take it apart right now to look, because I'm still messing with the dwell/input pressure trying to get it better)

I'll try in just a min though~

Im pretty sure I know how, But I really wanna wait and see what other people say before I try and do it... It could just be something else and I'd be wasting my time~

I just cleaned and lubed my gun as I stated in the first post, and its a brand new QEV so why should I need to clean it?

if its a 360 then they have problems with air flow and require a high dwell then most QEVs

Ok, it was because I put the silver thing on the opposite side...

I looked at the opposite side from what said Clippard on it and it had a little diagram~
