How did they manufacture that without any method of driving that keeper in place? I see a few pipe wrench bites in that gland housing, nothing that I would expect to see to rotate that.
I would like to see how you prepare the bore of the cylinder.
I repaired the two on my skid steer 30 years ago. I made an extension shaft from some 5/8" round bar, that I drilled a hole into the end, with cross holes for set screws that could clamp the end of a cylinder hone (for engine cylinders). And used an electric drill to drive that long shaft. I had a 5 gallon pail of cutting oil with a pump to flush the cylinder as I honed. Worked real well. Don't know if this would be the way it's done, so would be interesting to see how you do it.
I could go on about how I measured marked and calculated the placements for days but all of it would be false.
I did use the flat bar to drill the 2nd hole though by inserting 1 pin then hold the bar where it looked right the 3rd hole came out as almost pure dumb luck. the crane beam is on horses at the west end of my shop and by the time I was drilling the holes it was well into the afternoon around 100° and in the sun. At that point I wouldn't have cared if I had to make swiss cheese out of the gland
