How many lbs of R-12 does a 1990 Ford Escort take. on 1990 Ford Escort

The system is empty now and I replaced some componets, need to charge it now.

Asked by for the 1990 Ford Escort
need to evacuate it first to boil out the moisture. have a shop do this, then you can charge it. a parts store will tell you the amount but i believe it is only 2 lbs.

Thank you very much.
