560SL AC Questions I need specs !!!

Guys I need your input and some help with determining the new specs on my 1986 560SL AC unit. I have replaced the Condenser with an 18X22 Parallel Flow Condenser and installed a new Nippondenso compressor (113-0005) (60-01205) and of course I installed a new dryer. Question one is how much oil and type should I put into the system. I have flushed and drained the new compressor. Second Question with new Parallel Flow Condenser how much Freon? Also I know Larry prefers R12, but should I use 134 with the new condenser. What do you BRIGHT GUYS suggest? I need MAX Cold

The "system" needs approx 5.5-6oz OF PAG 46 oil if you are converting to R134a.

That type of condenser need less refrigerant than the original style. I would start with 1.5 lbs of R134a.

Of course a R107 chassis never had real cold a/c on a hot day.

But make sure the fresh air door close all of the way ON both sides in MAX a/c setting.
