okay, looking forward to your assistance!

I would use a large pipe wrench and w-40. If that doesn't work then I'd cut it out and fold the threads on itself

Customer: replied 26 days ago.
Would chiseling the bolt heads off help?
Customer: replied 26 days ago.
is this a 2" adapter in a 4" pipe?
Expert:  WCohn replied 26 days ago.

That's not what you want unless you want to remove it completely

Customer: replied 26 days ago.
okay , I need to get bigger pipe wrench!
Expert:  WCohn replied 26 days ago.

There is no liner so you might want to remove it all

Expert:  WCohn replied 26 days ago.

This would require jackhammering around it and cutting the vertical pipe just below it

Customer: replied 26 days ago.
Chiseled bolts off and left with this if we cant tap out bolts hiw about retapping also, is there an adapter to fit inside this?
Expert:  WCohn replied 26 days ago.

No. the whole thing has to come out.

Expert:  WCohn replied 26 days ago.

Gotta put this in

Customer: replied 26 days ago.
Sorry , trying to wrap my head around this.
I measure the inside diameter to be 1 1/2 inches and it seems to be threaded all the down to the main. Do you have a diagram of what I am looking at and also show me where to cut this.
Expert:  WCohn replied 26 days ago.

Let me ask you this. Are you putting in a shower or is this going to be used as a floor drain?

Customer: replied 26 days ago.
Shower
Expert:  WCohn replied 26 days ago.

Showers should be 2" the whole way and vented.
