Replaced AC compressor

1895 5
Hey all,
I replaced the ac compressor on the Gen1 Diesel and an odd thing came up.
Old AC compressor said 125cc oil on the tag and the new one says 40cc on the label. which amount of oil should I add?
I double checked the part .. this is the one I bought

It doesn't say in the included installation instruction manual? Or is that not included anymore?.

I'd probably go with the tag since there could be some changes between the dates when old was built and new was built..

Course. It's possible of incorrect tag also.

Make sure to oil the green connection seals also. Where the hoses connect to compressor.

I am running into the same situation as well. What was the deciding factor on how much pag oil is required, the 40cc or 125cc?
