The only person I know who has a set of gauges is about an hour away. I'll hook his set up the next time I'm out his way.
A couple more bits of info:
- Drained 1.4 oz oil from original compressor, after draining oil from new one added 2.0 oz.
- Added 1 oz oil to new desiccant bag.

If these are FSM specs (i don't know them) then i think you're fine. 1 oz is usually what dryers media retain. Don't know how much oil the Denso SCSA08 is supposed to retain during normal operation though.

Time to obtain your own set !!!

In my area, I know Autozone has free loaner AC gauge sets, had to borrow a set a few years ago because my own gauge set was 100 miles away.
