    Maybe one of these would work? Not sure of approvals though.

      Plus it gives you the equivalent of two unions as far as assembly/disassembly is concerned.

      I don't remember the OP stating if this was water or something else, and the OP has not been heard form since starting this thread.

      Time, cost, or quality; pick any two but you can't have all three.

        Braze on two 2 1/2" TP x copper adapters. Or TP x male adapters. The TP side will slip right on the brass plain end.

I have attached a photo of the existing condition. The threads need to be cut on the manhole side of both Romac fittings visible in the photo[ATTACH]17493[/ATTACH]. The reason for the dilema is that our client will not accept the Romac couplings as a permanent fix.
          To much work. Call the Romac rep and have him take your customer to school. Its an approved permanent solution.
          Just saying...............
