Need TSB

I am searching for a GM service/TSB concerning the correct procedure for adding lubricant to the 'V' series compressors. I seem to remember reading this....well...it has been a while. GM got any leads?
Thanks,

V-5 compressors, when off the car and being installed as service compressor get the entire oil charge in the crankcase- by removing the oil drain bolt on its belly- When on the car, the compressor usually has 3 ounces in the crankcase at any given time- and oil added can be through the suction port

-------------------------
The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......

I know the procedure, I am seeking the tech/service bulletin that GM published when this compressor was introduced.
Thanks
