Bathroom sink drain repair help


That is not going to be fun----in order to unscrew that pipe,a chain wrench might save you from damaging the wall---

They can be rented---

You will need a new drain pop up---that one is missing the tail piece--

Definitely install the P-trap temporarily before adding the drain to make sure the P-trap will make the trap adapter properly,if you try for a centered drain.

Bathroom sink drain repair help


best thing is to cut galvanized pipe near cast put a shielded fernco run a peice of 1 1/2 pvc pipe prime and glue 90 and sink adapter inside hub add new 1 1/2 or 1 1/4 trap and new pop up whole thing should cost 40 dollars then if you ever need to change out cast iron it is easy to reconnect sink

Those shielded fernco are pretty solid. That is definitely a good way to go.

So would it be better to use a rubber coupling on the steel after I cut it, or unscrew it from the cast iron?

Either will work just fine---your choice---In a perfect world unscrew it and use a threaded fitting--but this is not a perfect world.
