The owner of the company I work for, he was spouting off at the mouth because we have a real problem child in the shop that is a burr in his side for who knows what reason. Okay I should start out with I have no experience with a propane injected 6L chevy engine, and even though I fixed the starting/running issue (without being asked to even look at it) He was fussing about the length of time it took to get it going. I told him I did it between my regular jobs and was NOT asked to look at it, I just took it upon myself to get it done. I informed him I was going to be very stupid from this point forward and know less every day I have to punch in. He didn't have the nads to say something to my face and he didn't know I was standing behind him when he started flapping his gums. The look on his face was priceless when I let him in on ALL of the details.

i replaced rear O2 sensor, now have P0430 code....

it seems that by replacing only the right rear O2 sensor (its heater was dead and it was throwing P1193, IIRC), the front sensor may not be working quite well enough, thus the P0430 code (bank 2 cat converter working below efficiency threshold).

my theory is that i may be able to swap the new sensor to the front, and vice versa, and it MIGHT fix the problem. perhaps the old sensor is not quite up to snuff and thus the engine is running a bit rich on that bank which the new sensor is picking up.

adding vodka would not require an airlock.

You can try swapping the sensors but I don't think it is going to help your issue. It is customary to swap sensors in pairs, upstream and down stream but not left and right.
I assume we are talking about the Subbie

nope. rover. and guess what? the sensors for that year are a 'special size' yep, they are totally cute and tiny. which makes them $150/each. but, yeah, in pairs. the shop did this, i am sure to try and save me money (i know the owner pretty well and he is way cool, so i don't have a problem with him trying to save me money). so, i have the sensors out, i am swapping them. the front sensor looks terrible, all white and corroded. i'll know pretty quick if this is problem. if not, swapping the rear sensor out is a piece of cake. the front sensor, not so much.
