Re: Hi Standard H-D Hard to Cock Slide
dwdw, welcome to the forum. I am not sure I follow you. Taking the slide off with a punch and a hammer??? I am not sure what you got on Ebay and even less sure if you did or didn't heliarc.
As far as the slide dragging on the hammer that is normal. Think about it for a moment, in order to cock the hammer it has to be pushed down slightly past the sear to engage, so after the slide goes over the top of the hammer, the hammer rises just a bit to engage and be cocked/held by the sear, there is no way for that to happen without the slide dragging over the hammer.
I hope that helps you,
