The word from on high is that the cam carriers were line bored at the factory and need to stay matched together if possible. Another cam should work. Is it possible that the carrier assembly from the other side was switched by accidento? I would try swapping them first. The cam is something that isn’t going to bend much.
Others in this predicament have tried 3-4 carriers to find one that allows the cam to spin easily.
Whatever I suggest here should be given ample time for a moderator to delicately correct. I apologize in advance.
