    what part of the tub was it hooked to? are there any gases coming out of it? it could be a lead flange pipe, it could be an old air intake, it all depends on where you found it....we need a little more detail....

    is the part above the cast iron soft? Can you bend it easily with pliers? If so, it is a lead flange. It is either installed with a collar bolt, or it is just hammerd in...

    if not, unscrew it and bring it to Hardware store and they'll set you up with plastic/abs


    hope this helps....

    Is that copper leaded into cast iron with a piece of tubular brass sweated to it?
    Can't really tell with the pics...
