The same thing happened to me several years ago. I used a small hack saw=
blade to
cut a wedge out of the pipe. You're going to have to guesstimate the =
thread depth
of the pipe but close will do. Then use a center punch to knock out the =
wedge and
collapse the remaining piece of pipe. If you nick the threads in the =
block use
pipe thread dope when you insert the bulb.
I usually use brass fittings when mating to cast iron or steel that way =
less likely hood that the two will rust together.
Good luck,
