Surface Cuts

I'm trying to make a surface cut on my part.  The part is a round cylindrical shaped cap with a surface geometry going through the center.  I want to make that surface geometry remove some of the cylindrical part by about half the wall thickness.

 

See the attachment of the picture "cap" for a picture with the surfaces I'm speaking about.  The orange features are surfaces and the grey feature is just a solid cylinder that I want to cut. The vertical, cylindrical surface in orange is where I want the grey cylinder to be cut along the curved orange surface.  Only on the grey area outside of the orange cylindrical surface is to be cut while leaving everything grey on the inside area of the cylindrical surface will remain.

 

The picture titled "ideal cap" is the look that I'm going for on the picture titled "cap" which I'm trying to perform this cut on.  The picture titled "ideal cap" was made using Pro/E and I'm trying to mimic the same thing in Inventor.

 

Does anyone know how I can do this?
