Replacing all the AC stuff this weekend. Compressor blew, black death. The new compressor has 7oz of pag-46, how much do I need to add to the condenser, accumulator, & evaporator?

So do I need to take some out of the compressor & add it to the other items? Or will it circulate through the system once it's charged? These are all new parts. The compressor came pre oiled.

No need to redistribute it.

Be sure to give the compressor (clutch) a number of spins by hand in the proper direction after you close up the system and again just before you evacuate & charge it. This will push any excess oil out of the compressor that could otherwise damage it if it's first engaged at engine speed. After that it should distribute itself throughout the system.

Cool. I did add just a little to the accumulator. I spilled a little out of the compressor mounting it.

thanks
