repairing radiator pipe


I have a radiator pipe that split open about one inch right where the blades start. Can I remove some blades, cut the pipe and replace with pipe only for that inch? How should I remove the blades?

How bad is it split? I've had luck repairing cracks on Iron Rad pipe with JB Weld.

Thx for the reply. The split is not bad but it's copper. Can I remove the "blades?"

yes, just twist and turn them off after you cut the pipe.
