There is a reason the cam bearing holes in IA2 blocks are only 1/8". Its all thats needed and adds strength to the block.
If you main bearings have a oil "slot you are good. But if they only have a round hole like a Cleveite bearing that is a problem. The oil "shot" comes from the hole on the "tab" side of the intersecting feed holes in the block. I drill mine to match that hole and debur it with a small round file.
If you don't the oil has to hit the back of the bearing before it gets to your crank, then the rods. You starve your rod bearings at high RPM if you don't do this or get slotted main bearings. Even slotted bearings I open it up to the tab side some with a file.

With all do respect Dragncar, not what i asked, I mean the cam bearings themselves, once there lined up to the hole in the block they are alot smaller than feed holes.

I know what you were referring to. Just giving you some advice on the main bearings. Do the P Dude trick on the thrust too. You engine will thank you.
Cam bearings can be run beat up and your engine does not know the difference.
Main bearings, get it right.
