Buy a new one and eliminate the guesswork.

I had the same dilemma and had the same gouges in the bore. These run the full length of the cylinder stroke and the o-ring on the piston won't seal correctly.

I bit the bullet and bought a new cylinder and I have been happy. I would suggest that you get a new one as well and enjoy the better performing lift after you are done.

Mine looked that bad after honing. I reused it and it works pretty darn good. The blade touches the ground after 6 hours - that's good enough for me. If it chews up the oring and needs it again in a few years I will put In a new one. It shouldn't as I have bigger tractors to work with - that is just the yard tractor.

New cylinder is ready to install - You may need to clearance the outer edge of the cylinder for the lift linkage. Some need it, some don't. Easily accomplished with a die grinder or abrasive disk grinder, whatever you have available.
