I'll second this. I've put the back together, and done a nice job of taping
everything up. Then, torque it to the spec (this is one of three things I
use the torque wrench on-very important) and see if you get any codes. If
the sensor ohms out, and the torque is in spec, I don't see why you would
have any issues with it. But, if you want a new one "just because", I can
completely understand that as well.
