I'm not going to doubt that there are large bearing clearances, but the block checked out ok and the cam bearing looked faily new so I left them alone. No blowby or anything. It runs great and no noises. Could the pickup be clogged? Maybe from debris during breakin?

That is a possiblity, not sure break in would have caused enough to clog it, but something may have. And for the record I wasn't saying you built the engine wrong just giving ideas of what may be the cause. After I read my post it did not read the way I intended. Sorry if I came across wrong.
