Cruiseair questions on hooking up the wires to control panel

This is an older Cruiseair which has the 3 black knob control panel with a color coded wire harness and uses 2 remote evaporators. It cools and heats.

I disconnected the compressor sometime ago and was thinking of putting it back into the boat.
What I would like to know is which color wire goes where inside of the compressor unit. I wrote this down but may have lost it.

I also would like to know what the oil charge and R22 charge would have been. When it broke what happened was one of the copper lines that goes into the unit cracked and it lost everything including some oil.
Are they still using that soft annealed bendable copper tubing for these AC-Heat pumps?

I am planning on recharging with a propane butane mix which is more efficient and only uses 40% of the original R22 volume.

Re: Cruiseair questions on hooking up the wires to control panel

I think this unit is the 1 1/3 ton Type F

Mine is older, so the wires at the compressor end dont use a wire harness plug. It is possible a prior owner made a change years ago and wired it directly eliminating the plug!

The terminal screws might also be color coded so then this is much easier to comprehend.

I did find some general info here

Re: Cruiseair questions on hooking up the wires to control panel

I seem to recall this has 4 wires to the control panel.
Seeing the blue wire has to do with heat and not used on cool only models, this wire must be used to energize the reversing valve. So I can figure it out.
