The "sucking through wire" report was bogus, I believe.  The problem with
soldering some of the O2 wires is that they are made from materials that
don't solder well?????

Keep the connector off your old O2 sensor wires, crimp leads from it onto
leads to connector from a car that uses a generic sensor.
