A/C Leak at compressor?

I decided to start getting my ac system working on my 94 b3000. It supposedly worked very well a couple of years ago. I went ahead and put my gauges on it and found it to be totally empty. Reading 0/0 and compressor never turning on. Pulled a vaccume on it and it held 30m @-27psi. Proceeded to charge it with an oil/freon can and it blew nice and cold. Also had dye in it. Well, found dye bubbling out of what looks to be a blowoff valve at the back of the compressor where the line from the dryer to the compressor goes in. Wtf is this thing? Can I replace just the valve? Entire compressor?

Not sure... might have to put it on the bench and see if you can unscrew it and re-seal. Otherwise sounds like parts swap to me.
