AC recharge after condenser replacement 900 1994

I have replaced the condenser on this car.

I am going to install a new receiver dryer. In the process of doing that I plan to add oil to replace what was lost in the system when I swapped out the condenser.

At 109K the car has it original compressor. What type and how much oil should I add to the system? Which hose at the receiver dryer should I add the oil to?

Any recommendations on which orifice tube to use as a replacement?

Any other suggestions before pulling a vacuum and adding 33ozs of 134a?

Thank you,
Any twenty minute job is just a broken bolt away from a three day ordeal
