How much oil to add?

How much PAG 46 would you suggest that I add replacing the accumulator? I know that the system has leaked over the course of a few years. In the past on other cars, when changing a compressor I have drained the oil out of the compressor, and added that amount plus an ounce or two. I don't know if that makes sense with an accumulator or not? Assuming that I am adding some oil would I want to add it at the accumulator or @ the compressor/high side line? I thought I read somewhere that adding at least an ounce of oil to any component being replaced is a good idea.

thanks

Drill a hole in the bottom and measure the amount. Add that plus .5 ounces back.
