Re: new cam and bearings really tight fitting
It is not normal, but it is normal for the bearings to need "fitting" to the cam. Your machine shop should have done this with a "test" cam when they installed the bearings. Take the block back to them and ask them to fit the bearings. Sometimes this can become a very time consuming job so they will probably charge you accordingly. It is not a job I recommend trying at home.
The cam should spin very easily by hand.
