pg_rewind (https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.6/static/app-pgrewind.html)
has been designed with exactly this scenario in mind, aka recycling a
past master as a slave to a promoted node. Have you looked at it? What
you are trying to do is much likely going to create corruptions on
your systems, so I am not surprised that you see inconsistency
failures, what you are seeing is pretty much the tip of hte iceberg.
