Sidewinder help

So I'm sitting here scratching my head utterly confused. Wanted to get out and use my Viking after not using it for a few years. Got it all teched up, SCM-III set right, board programmed how I wanted it, Sidewinder set shooting around 280FPS with reballs. Swap out the CP On/Off for a Bob Long Cam Drive and now air isn't getting to the noid some how. Noid still clicks away but gun isn't firing. Disassembled to check for a clipped o-ring or something blocking a passage way. Found nothing. Put it all back together and it leaks out the vent hole right next to where the reg screws in. Found that odd so I tried another Sidewinder. Second Sidewinder leaks out of the vent hole on the reg body.

I'm stumped as to what could have happened. Both the gun and 2 regs have been recently rebuilt and oiled. Thoughts?

Haunted. Definitely ghouls at work here. Order holy water, wrap marker and regs in panties and splash with holy water, unwrap after 3 days and all should be good.

No thanks needed.

On a serious note, no idea but curious how this gets solved so definitely want to see the suggestions.

If you pull the macro out of the sidewinder and turn on the asa does it blow air....you may have put the air fitting in the asa to tight

Alternatively, its possible if you switched macro fittings on the sidewinder you put it too far into the sidewinder and have cut off air flow.

Honestly don't even remember what I ended up doing to fix it. Never had a problem before with the fittings, always made sure to leave them a few turns looser than I would so the swivel would still work.
