I am changing my compressor out due to a front seal I replaced that is now leaking(lasted three months). I just don't want to take it off again. my compressor is a 10p15 and it says that it has some lubricant oil in it and not to drain it. how much oil should I add? drain it out of the old compressor and replace that amount? what do you guys think??

Pretty odd a supplier would just say it has some oil in it. Usually it is stated that there is the correct system charge of oil or this compressor comes with a small amount of oil for shipping purposes. My self I would drain in and get fresh oil in it.
