A/C Compressor oil

Anybody know the amount and type of oil that should be added to a new a/c compressor? Mine is being delivered with shipping oil only and needs to be drained and reserviced before installation.
3 944's, 2 Boxsters and one Caman S, and now one 951 turbo. Really miss the Cayman.

Some people try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Generally 3-4 ounces, add some oil to both ports, one at a time, and rotate the clutch to push the oil into the compressor body. Repeat until you have added all the oil.

Best to drain the new compressor and measure the amount of oil, then replace with the amount of the type you will be using.

If you are staying with R12, use mineral oil.

If you are charging with R134a then use POE since it is compatible with mineral oil as opposed to PAG.
