Default Cam Bearings slide through journals

I have recently overhauled my 5.7l LT1. When i tried to install the cam bearings back in, some of them slid right through the journal. I have the numbers and positions correct. Anybody ever have this issue and how do I correct the problem. I didn't know cam Bearings came in other sizes. + / - .000. Do i just order another set and hope for the best?

Was the block machined? Ask your machine shop what part# bearings to order, or take it back to them and have them measured.
