Must be the receiver/dryer, aka accumulator. Does it have a sight glass incorporated into its top end ?

If it were me, I'd unplug the connector to the AC compressor clutch, so that it cannot try to engage. As the system has been open, it will require complete evacuation and charge - and I would not leave it open like that too long - moisture is the worst enemy of an AC system.
