Hi-
I just replaced my compressor and accumulator and when removing the orifice tube...realized I had the dreaded 'black death' problem. So I replaced the condensor and hoses and flushed the evaporator with Lacquer Thinner 'till clean. I was going to add 7 oz oil to the compressor and 1/2 oz to the accumulator. System capacity is 8 oz. How much should I add for replacing the condensor and hoses and how?
Thanks
Rick

Sounds like you have a clean system at this point. So I would add back the system capacity.
