The NRA published a series of books on firearms disassembly and repair--their instructions are illustrated and detailed. The first two times I tore down a 5-teen, I used the manual. Now I just tear in to them.

The NRA books are available on Amazon.com and you might just check any used bookstores in your area.

Nope--got to reassemble the bolt completely and then cock it. I just grab a shop towel and grip the cylindrical part of the bolt, and then "lift up" the bolt handle to cock it. If that is too hard, you can try putting the bolt in a vise (padded jaws) or hold it with a set of vise grips/channel-lock pliers (padding also) and then lifting up on the bolt handle.

However, I think you will be able to do it by hand--

Could it be the sear it is hanging on? You do need to pull the trigger all the way to the rear when re-inserting the bolt (my apology if I'm assuming too much).
