Our Answer:

Due to the heavy scaling on the gas starter pipe, I would recommend disconnecting the feed from the gas starter and replacing the whole assembly. Threading an older pipe will usually cause it to crack. It would be necessary to use a replacement pipe, such as the item this question was placed under. This piping uses heat treated iron to keep it from deteriorating.

In Response to Question:

Our existing fireplace gas starter pipe has burnt thru and broken off. It is 1/2" pipe. I tried black pipe from HD but it lasted less than one season. So my question is. Do I remove the panel on the side of the gas feed and replace the whole pipe if accessible or can I thread the existing end and add to it? Also what kind of material does the pipe need to be so it will sustain high temps?
