Trouble replacing double sinks drains that are attached to each other

An old double sink in the basement is leaking. The problem is that the threads of the drain flange that the tail peice connects to have disitegrated and that where it is leaking. I don't know how to disconnect the "thing" the drains feed into. Both drains feed into a single iron "thing" that then connects to the tailpiece.

Post a picture.
If it's what I think it is, I just split it with a Dremel tool with a cut off blade making sure not to go to deep and cut the threads. Once split a tap with a chisle will open it up and it should just about fall off.
