Default NEED HELP WITH VALVE BODY REBUILD

So I recently came across a 05 Max with 158,000 miles and the horrible slam bang thud shifting. I ordered the transgo shift kit and started my install yesterday. First valve body I've touched and I think I lost my virginity to someone who has been round the block a couple times. What i mean is the valve body had engravings on I not factory) like number and letter series and Roman numbers. I decided to go ahead with install anyways. Cover bolts don't very tight either. So I disconnected everything and started with step 1. Rebuild solenoid. I pick up solenoid and holy Hell. It has a cap on end I'm supposed to grind. It's not like in picture. Omg omg omg. I need this finished by this weekend. Anyone I is if I have a different solenoid or what. Why does mine look different? Of someone could please call and talk me through this mountain I would def appreciate it. This is my wifes car and she has no other means of transportation to haul our 2 little girls with. Thanks in advance.

Ok I'm done trying for pics. I'll give a description. The solenoids I pulled off look way different. The transgo kit instructions say to grind off edge of the "sheath" flush and #remove old cap. Look at mine, the "sheath" is all one piece solid as in no end cap to remove and 4 holes on the end. So there is no way to remove the internals to ream it out. Can I use a deremal tool to cut off the end carefully so I can repair it? Doesnt look like I can remove the sheath easily. Do i have a different solenoid from somewhere or what? The solenoid does have an 8 engraved on it. As I stated b4 the whole valve body had engravings all over it.
