yeah, this is a good point.
since there is no freon in there now anyway, and your compressor is grinding, thus debris is in the system, at a minimum, you need to reverse flush your lines, and the condenser using an a/c flush agent, and dry nitrogen. get a new reciever, and if it were me, I'd also convert the expansion valve into a flush tool to flush out the evaporator as well, then install a new expansion valve. that way, you can use the PROPER oil for the refrigerant you choose to install, and charge it up right!
