Hi guys
im making a modification to the truck air conditioner system and have had to break the air conditioner line.......which resulted in the loss of the refrigerant Which is not a problem as I’ve located the specifics for refrigerant, compressor oil etc.............sooooo my question IS....HOW MUCH OIL SHOULD I ADD TO THE A/C COMPRESSOR system Or should I add any at all?
on a side note.....I’m not going to evacuate/clean the a/c system.....im just looking to add oil.....if necessary.....and add the refrigerant.
Any help is appreciated.....I’ve got the tools....a/c gauges....vac pump...oil....refrigerant.....etc.
thanks in advance

There's really no way of knowing how much oil was released when the line was broken.
Here's a chart that might provide some insight.
