Ron, I'd learned long ago to make one "change" at a time.
At this point in your journey, I'd suggest you remove the oil pump idler gear & cover. I typically install the cam and only then the pump gear & cover.
I am of the assumption that the valve train is NOT installed - correct?
If no valve train has yet been installed and the cam doesn't turn with the pump idler gear and cover removed, I'd look next at cam bearings being too tight.
