Hello I will help
Drain the old compressor and measure what comes out. Either remove enough oil from the new compressor to get 2 ounces total in it or if you drained more from the old leave that much in the new but at least 2 ounces.
You can add 1 ounce to the new condenser.
Was the oil burnt?
I am wondering why you had no oil in the compressor?
The condenser is 1 ounce.
If the old compressor did not have much then fill the new one with 2 ounces and put one ounce of what you drain in the condenser.
The normal fill for a Honda compressor is 3 ounces but if you have oil in the system that is too much, knock it back to 2 ounces or whatever is drained if more.
Let me know if you have further questions
Put it in the port that is closest to the compressor in line so the discharge from the compressor to the condenser pushes the oil into the condenser.
I am always glad to help, if you have no further questions please complete the rating
Better under than over in this case. There is still oil in the rest of the system.
That is what Honda dictates how to do the oil and it is industry standard.
Once you get it charged up and running properly you can add another ounce to the system but it really is not necessary as normal operation of the system will move the oil to where it needs to be
Have them suck it down and wait to be sure nothing is leaking then install the refrigerant by weight and let it run for 15 minutes in the shade with the windows open and the blower on half speed. You cant measure the inlet and outlet of the evaporator with this system but you can ensure the radiator fan is working and that the inlet and outlet of the condenser is about a 40 degree difference.
If it is everything is good, if you are seeing a large difference in the 40 degree difference in to out then you would either add more refrigerant or remove some to get the temp reading where you need it for optimum performance.
