Help with front strut ID

Good morning Pelicans,

Thank you in advance for any help you provide.

So my car is a 74S. I believe the front struts to be original to the car although I am not 100%. They were rattle canned red before I bought the car some 30 years ago. I am doing a front end refresh. I removed the struts and painted them. I have concluded they are not Bilstein because they do not have the roll pin.

So my questions are;

1. if original they would be Boge?
2. the threaded piece where the insert meets the tube should have a cap?
3. how do I remove the insert to put in a new insert?

I have attached some photos. Feel free to include any helpful info.

Thanks again.
