In order to help you, I need to know what type of pipes we are dealing with. If the pipes have a coat of paint on them (typical), you could remove a small area to expose the material for identifcation. A picture would make things alot easier.
the pipes are copper. changed from a single to double and width's are now very different, pipe for other end had enough give to meet up but no leeway here.
