Where did you get only one can of refrigerate? Lol it take close to 4Just 1 can of refrigerant? 12 ounces? That's enough from empty to allow the pressure switch to cycle? Hmm. I was always under the impression that you would need about 1/2 a charge before the switch would cycle worth a flip. My mind may be off here, but it's what, 3.25 pounds of R12 (52 oz) for a normal G-body charge, thus at 85% you're looking at 44 oz of 134a. And a 12 oz can is about 1/4 of a charge. That just doesn't seem like enough. I haven't done a conversion in 600 years, so my memory ain't so good on that. You're not slugging liquid refrigerant in there when the compressor is engaged are you? If you do, it's Russian roulette for your compressor.
Maybe I'm missing something here. But it seems your oil amount is correct (now). The refrigerant is only going to carry whatever oil the refrigerant is going to carry. A tad more oil shouldn't hurt it. But not enough may. Good luck with this.
