The studes that used the York compressor took 3 lbs. I would guess about 1 lb 10oz would be a good starting point, and then check your pressures.

Wouldn't an '85 use the GM A-6 compressor?

If your point is that a 1985 system is different from a Studebaker system, I agree with you.

I did mention a point where I would start.... It doesn't matter what compressor you are running. The point is to compress the refrigerant so it expands through an orfice, and becomes cooler. You know how much by reading gauges. It wasn't invented by people guessing, and should not be serviced by guessing.
