Yep - kind of the same like he said but the bulge from the impact I would just get at with a course file until it looks almost blended, then paint the carter deck with a sharpie and do figure 8s with it upside down against some wetted 220 aluminium oxide cloth mounted onto some plate glass. Wet the 220 with kerosene, it will make a better cut and pick up al the crap. Wipe often and repaint with the sharpie as your bluing so you can see when you have taken enough material off so there is no raised bump or pocket.

Should be indexing the replacement cylinder anyhow so not like you can shave off too much as long as you keep it straight. Also while you are in there match the transfer lead ins on the carter to the replacement cylinders transfers for improved performance.
