[DML] Re: AC compressor oil where does it go?

OK, I got a little bit out but not very much. I will infact replace 
most of my AC myself but I would like to get what I have running so 
that I can have AC while I am saving up. The compressor looks brand 
new, like the PO replaced it. It is possible he replaced it before 
he was sent to prison so perhaps the system has not been charged 

At any rate do I just pour 8 oz into the back of the compressor
