A/C replaced condenser

92 cad with r-12 condenser was struck from road material and leaked out

Replaced condenser, how much oil should I use?  I have not dumped the accumulator, nor the compressor. an what type of oil should I be using?

I plan to pour the oil in prior to the accumulator then evacuate the system, and if it holds vacuum re charge with R-12

Please let me know if anyone has an idea,

thanks,
mark

Re: A/C replaced condenser

You could get away with not adding any refrigerant oil when replacing a condenser, because most oil is stored in the compressor. But be sure you evacuate the system before charging.

With a quality A/C charging station, oil injection is performed following recovery and vacuum evacuation, and before the refrigerant charge.

You should do a 134a conversion. It's cheap, and comes with a special refrigerant oil to be added.
