Default AC pressures and orifice tube

Hi All, Looking at replacing my a/c compressor- leaking very badly, not cold. I have a new compressor, accumulator and orificie valve.

I know how to replace the compressor and accumulator- but where is the orifice tube located? It has to be in-line with the tubes/hoses, or in the compressor, but where? picture would be wonderful.

Also, I have r134 gauges and a vacuum pump- what swhould the pressures be? or is it a range? and how much oil to put in?

Thanks in advance.
