Wow, that's a beast. I doubt there's an easy way, but it may help if you include the version of Inventor you're using. I'm guessing you may have to cheat a little on the liner overlaps. Also, it's somewhat unclear what's going on where the upper liner plates transition from cone to cylinder.

Just a reminder, there is no way to "convert" a newer version file to an older version.

 

I suspect karthur provided you a file created in 2010 or earlier for you.

Sorry about that.  Try this one.  Pretty sure it was done with 2010.

 

On a side note, what service packs do you have installed?  You can find them here for 2010.
