Engine Size: 455
Refrigerant Type: 134a
Several (8 or 9??) years ago, I installed a new ackits.com A6 Compressor, converted to R134a, re-calibrated the POA valve, etc. Unfortunately, then the car sat for 5 years (long story), but I got it running again back in April.
Once I got the engine running again, it appeared that the A/C system had lost a good bit of it's R134a while sitting (it showed 20psi sitting there, and took right at 24 oz of refrigerant to get the pressures / temps back up to where my old notes showed best performance.
Now, after a couple of months of being operated about once every other week, the a/c system has lost refrigerant again, and there is a fair amount of oil that's been slung out of the compressor front seal, making a mess of my nice clean engine compartment.
So I'm assuming that the most likely culprit is that front seal, but which seal is the best one to get - and do I need to remove the old one before getting a new one because of shaft sizes, etc?
Any guidance would be appreciated.

Whoops, my apologies for posting in the wrong forum. Can't find the delete button or I'd repost...
Is there any way to tell which one I need without taking everything apart first?
