Wanting to see if anyone can tell me how much refrigerant oil to put into a new condenser and accumulator? Thanks

Total system capacity is 8oz. Hope this helps. :) Btw, I am assuming it is for your GAGT.

Btw, How much R134a did you purchase? Did you get individual 12/16oz cans or did you get a 30lb bulk cylinder? Also, did you happen to remember how much a 30lb cylinder costs? I bought a 30lb cylinder 4 years ago at BJ's Wholesale Club before the price skyrocketed and paid only 80 dollars for the cylinder. :D

It's for my GAGT. I bought the individual cans of 134.

I found out I need 1 oz in the accumulator, I'm still not sure about the condenser tho. Any help?

I think that 1oz they refer to is part of the 8oz system total and not in addition to it. I guess you can always add 1oz to the accumulator, 1oz to the condensor, and the remainder to the compressor. If you have a buddy with a Shop manual or a Haynes/Chiltons guide, now is the time to pay them a visit. :) You can always check out the manuals at the library as well

Do you have a good manifold gauge set as well or are you just using a simple gauge that you attach to the suction (low pressure) side?

Thanks for the input Magnus. I added 1 oz to accum. and 2 oz to the condenser. I evacuated the system and just got done charging it. Temp sat on about 34 degrees.
