On the top of the solenoid (I think its the solenoid, I'm a newb as far as electronic markers go) there is a little metal thing which two 4mm tubes connect to from opposite directions. One brings air in from the regulator, the other connects to the donut. Does anyone know if you can switch these two? Like if I had the air coming in from the tube that usually goes to the donut and the air going to the donut from the tube that normally brings air from the reg?

It's for a mod I'm working on

No you can't. The noid head and barb set up is unidirectional. You can, however, get longer tubing and just re-route it to where you need to...

Alright, thanks man. I just found some 2ft thing of 4mm tubing anyways. BTW, do you know what kind of pressure the 4mm tubing can handle?

there should be a rating printed onto the tubing itself, I believe that the blue tube in the Ion are rated to 180 PSI and I believe the smaller white tube is rated at 40 PSI or somewhere around there. I hope the 2 ft of tubing you found is rated for LP otherwise I wouldn't use it just so it doesn't blow out
