Cast iron at some point is going to rust out, concider replacing all of it.

As said cast iron shouldn't have water in it.

I had an issue like this with an *OLD* fire hydrant riser in a shop I used to have.
An wizened old plumber told me to pour salt on the leak and wrap it with a rag.
That worked.
