Fitting Cam Bearings

How is it done? Need to fit my #5 bearing. Cam is straight, and I have checked / tried to make sure bearing is square as can be. Smart move would be take it to the shop but I don't want to give in!
Without putting dye to it, looks like it is contacting almost all the way around inside the bearing just inside the bearing about . About 1/2 the distance to the oil hole in the bearing. I have an old cam, not a scrap one, but one I don't need that was given to me I could cut a grove in but not certain on how that is done either. Seeking some input/methods that work for you all. Thanks in advance.
