1986 SPG. I think that my condenser is clogged, causing excessive high side pressures; My high side hose ruptured today and I lost all my refrigerant. I am going to replace all components except compressor and evaporator. Do I need to add the full amount of oil (8 oz.) or assume that some oil is left in the compressor? Also, can I add the full amount to the system in one bolus or do I need to add in increments to the various components? I'd rather just add all at once.
