Adding AC Compressor oil

I'm about to vacuum down my 134a converted system for a recharge. The compressor originally came with a load of oil. Does all the oil stay in the system or am I going to have to add some?

As long as you bleed the system down very slowly so that it's not spraying oil out with the residual refrigerant, I don't think you need to add any.
