I've encountered this before. I suspect all of us have dinged a cam bearing or two at one time or another. I have used a rough cut rat-tail file to cut down anything that sits above the plane of the bearing surface and wiped out the filings with my finger. Do this V-E-R-Y slowly and V-E-R-Y carefully and you should be fine. It ain't rocket surgery!
