I have stripped the drywall and removed the old tub in my bathroom. No problem. The tub drain P-trap has an approx. 8" long galvanized extension pipe. I cannot get the overflow/tub drain extension out of the 8" long pipe. It should be a slip-fit. Any suggestions? I have been applying penetrating oil.

If you have room, use a pipe wrench with a "cheater pipe" extension on the handle for leverage. A cheater pipe is just a piece of galvanized pipe large enough to fit over the end of the pipe wrench handle.
THAT should break it loose.
Good luck!
