If your bucket lifts 1000lbs you have two (or three) other things to consider. The pivot action of the bucket tilting up is probably well over 1000lbs. of force. That should be enough to break it loose. Also, you could remove the heavy bucket and put something else across the arms to use to lift with. Now seriously, if I were going to attempt something like this I would be buying the proper tool to both hold the pipe in between lifts, and the proper tool to attach to lift it with. Don't know if it was mentioned, but if the well isn't dry you also have the buoyancy of the water so the whole thing won't weigh as much.
Another very important thing to keep in mind. While working, if that thing slips and lets loose, the wire is going to be moving fast down the well. If your foot or hand were to get tangled in it, you could loose it. If it happened to jump around and get around your chest, we could loose you!

Volume in cubic inches equals Pi X .75 X.75 X length in inches. I figured up how much water the plumbing in a house would hold. Its amazing how little water it takes to fill the pipes.
