    Can you remove the sleeve fitting without cutting if you waggle it? You can tap with a hammer on the fittings of the two pipes or use a angle grinder to cut a slice through the old box sleeve and bend it and remove.

    Heat is the best way and in this weather a god send so a blow lamp may give a bit more heat as the metal will expand but better with a gas axe at a fitting station should it not budge.

    My favorite tool in the garage trade was the gas axe followed next by the mig.
