Post sbc350 that eats cam lobes

I have a sbc350 bored 30 over ,1.6 rockers,heads have screw in studs with guide plates and they have been ported & polished by a quality shop. My engine has chewed two cams[both times on #8 the worst but also on 7,6and5. I've used hydraulic lifter cams both times. Also ,I didn't have any problembs till I installed these heads. I think I may have found the problemb ,but I would value some other opinions. I noticed some of the rockers don't line up square on the vavle stems. They are ****ed off to the side a little. I'm wondering if this is causing the lifters not to rotate properly by putting a side load on them. Any help would be nice thanks
