Just curious - did you have anything machined (case spigots, heads, etc.)? If so, this could cause alignemnt issues between the chain housings and the cam decks (housings)...provided material wasn't also removed from the chain boxes.
The heads were machined - guides replaced, several valves replaced, seats cut, valves ground, and mating surface resurfaced. However the resurfacing did not remove enough metal to make a difference. The cam is well centered on the hole in the chain housing.
