The finished product. Press it in until flush with the end of the strut re-install the set screws with blue Loc-Tite and you're done. It should be noted that the bearing shell should be "spotted" with a drill to accept the heads of the set screw PLEASE be careful doing this that you don't go through the bearing and that you don't muck up the set screw holes threads.
Unless you own a hydraulic or mechanical press the easiest and most reliable way to replace a cutlass is to do it with the shaft out. I would recommend replacing a cutlass any time you have the shaft out as they are cheap insurance.
This entire job, from start to finish, after the shaft was already removed, even with taking these photos, was about 30 minutes. If you need to make two cuts it could take longer..
