I think that you have very serious issues if you are hitting the cam on a small cam like the 262h. I would make sure you have the correct cam, rods, block, crank etc. If this is all correct then I would try to find out if the block has had the mains align bored. If there has been a lot of damage to the main caps or the main caps had been replaced with the wrong aftermarket pieces then they may have been bored excessively. This would move the crank closer to the cam. Was there excessive slack or play in a new timing chain? This would indicate the same problem.
