General Motors V5 and V7 compressors have a control valve.  A control valve measures refrigerant and adjusts the angle of the swash plate, to which the pistons are connected, and controls the stroke of the pistons.  If high pressure is measured, the control valve adjusts to shorten the stroke of the pistons, so less pressure is produced.  If, upon installation of a new ac compressor, there seems to be no ‘pumping’ from the a/c compressor, it may be necessary to remove the control valve and blow off excess oil.  The control valve may be sensing no pressure and presuming the system is empty of refrigerant.
The Accumulator or Filter Drier should always be replaced when the Air Conditioning System is opened.  (see why)  The Orifice Tube, if equipped, should always be replaced and the Expansion Valve, if equipped, should at least be inspected for proper operation if not replaced.  (see why)
