not something I would recommend doing yourself. if you don't pull a vaccum on the system after the swap it will never work properly. the vaccum ensures that the non-condensibles are removed from the system so the refrigerant can work properly. moisture mixes with refrigerant to form acid which will cause leaks and part failure.

I replaced the compressor on my E150 van this summer. Not difficult to do, but be sure to use the correct tools and install new seals that match the refrigerent. For the documentation, go to Prelude13's page and download his online manuals. The chapter on airconditioning should do the trick.
You will also need to replace the receiver/dryer and expansion or orrifice valve.
After I changed out the parts and pre-loaded the system with lubricant, I electrically in-oped it all until I could get to a mechanic who had the vacuum pump and charging hoses.
good luck
