missing surfaces when moving part into assembly

I have a complex assembly that was made by someone else, and I am attempting to rebuild it from scratch in order to have a better understanding of how it works.  I am running into a problem where I have a part that looks like a combination of "construction bodies" and "design bodies".

 

The problem I am running into is that when I import the part into an assembly, none of the "construction bodies" are inserted, and all I get is the "design body".

 

here is the part:

 

 

and here is the part when I insert it into the assembly:

 

 

I'm unclear as to what exactly is going on here, and how to fix it.  Thanks for the help!

Jason,

 

In the assembly, right click, select "show/hide all component..." and then check the box for surfaces.  That should make them appear.

Thanks!

You also might be able to toggle the construction bodies to design bodies in that part?
