HC3 Install trouble

Hey all i am installing a cam in for a guy here local, this is first honda 700 i have seen and i must say it ran very well. Anyways i got cam installed followed by service manual. Lobes down at TDC compression stroke and timing marks spot on. Rotates fine everything was going smooth. Bolted head cover on and rotates to a certain point and stops due to hitting something. Ive tried looking and going both ways and i cant see quite what it is. Took cover off and double checked my work and all looked good, installed again and we have same problem. Almost seems like rocker arm needs clearanced. Ive went step by step per manual and now im stuck and need some help. Any help is appreciated

Sounds like you did everything correct. I have never used a HC, but have installed 3 different Webb cams in the XX with no issues. Here is the manual if you want to double check it.

Are the timing marks aligned with the deck correctly?? I know that sounds like a dumb question but its easy to do. Maybe the valves are hitting the piston. HC3's are supposed to be drop ins.

you dont need any clearenceing for a hot cam you must have something installed a little wrong. the big cams dont need any clearence either. did you put the decomp in correctly or at all?

Yea I installed it as paper said with hot cam looks right. Something is hitting around rocker arms cuz without head cover rotates great. Timing marks look spot on also.
