Possible to install cam bearings without the tool?
Is it possible to remove and install cam bearings without the special cam bearing installation/removal tool? This is with the block completely disassembled. I can't justify buying the tool if I'm only going to use it once (its pretty much the only tool I don't have)
Local machine shop is backed up and I'm on bit of a tight schedule to get the car done before my vacation is up otherwise I'd take it to them. So if anyone has any ideas I'd like to hear them.

I would call the machin shop, tell them you will pay cash and help move the block etc. It will only take a few min. they need to be perfectly straight. If you have never done them you need someone else to do it.
I can put them in in a few min....take your cam with you and oil it up stick it in and make sure it turns nice and free before you leave.
