Most Vintage Air units require 1.8 lbs. of R-134

I'm guessing the condensor size would affect the sys capacity. Are most automotive condensors about the same size ? this one completely covers the rad. Do I still need to add that can of oil with a rotary compressor ? Thanks, Jerry

Condensor size has little bearing on system capacity. A new Sanden compressor is charged with all the oil the system will need.
