After doing an a/c flush. Is there a next step other than putting on back components to a/c?

Amount of oil depends of what was flushed and what is replaced

System 8oz oil if compressor came with oil pour out measure. Put 5oz in compressor and 3 oz in accumulator. Oil O rings vacuum down for at least 2 hr. Then let system sit for 1 hr if Vacuum drops then have leak if holds charge 32 oz 134A

Does it matter what orifice tube to use? Fixed or variable.

I look at accumulator and didn't notice how to inject oil. How is that done?
