Ok it was a lead joint with a brass ring. I'm very surprised that it leaked. Once I got a section cut out the lead peeled right out. I ran the PVC to the next copper joint and connected it with a fernco fitting, no leaks. I will tackle the vent pipe next. I very much appreciate the help!

Got the second drain done. Done for the day, I will finish the vent tomorrow. Not sure what you guys charge for this but it's not enough! If I didn't have 2 in college I would not be doing this. Again thanks for the help, great website! Small donation made.
