    go here for information. You need to use a york style compressor. I believe all other ac compressors use oil in the refridgerant charge for lubrication so would not work well for oba. You can also find that column from the front page under technical. You may want to check it as it has several good articles and I'm guessing that's why no one has answered you yet.

    Kilby sells a kit to recover the oil from a rotary compressor and send it back into the compressor. onboardair.com You can also buy those same bits from mcmaster or grainger and build it yourself. Prolly won't save any money, but you can do it.

    While you're at OBA cruise their tech stuff too. And you can google the topic to get more hits than you can beleive.
