Frankied: Cut the PVC off close to the bell of the Cast Iron. Take an electric drill with a 1/4"-
5/16" bit and drill down into the lead caulking along side the PVC. With a little wiggle action you shouuld be able to eat a hole in the PVC and the lead simutaneously. You should do this at two point 180 degrees apart. Put a rag in the pipe so you don't lose the pieces and use a large screw driver to coax the PVC..Lead and old oakum from
the Cast iron hub.
You can connect your new PVC to the Cast Iron by using a Multi-tite type gasket in the hub, and simply pushing your new PVC into it(CHAMFER THE EDGES ON THE PVC FIRST) put a little soap on the PVC before pushing it home.
Lots of Luck...Bud
