Why do through-hole components fail to solder correctly down onto the PCB?

I am an electrical engineer in a company. Recently I am developed a new product in lab and making a sample for further confirmation. When I solder TH component, feel a little troublesome. Any soldering expert to help?

(Even the soldering process is under the suggested temperature.)

1.Component’s lead temperature is too cold and cannot form a good solder join.

2.Through-Hole Dimensions on the PCB are insufficient (too small)

3.Physical damage to the solder joint after soldering
After soldering, some processes may cause physical stress and fracturing, such as installing a heat sink on the surface, or installing unfitted plastic case molding.

Is saving through-hole components viable?

I recently got my hands on some old electronics. After getting some to work and failing to get others to work. My Question-Is desoldering and salvaging through-hole and surface-mount PCB components viable, or should I just buy the components online?
