cam bearing wont cause this. Setting the tensioner incorrectly will. The belt will find its own natural resting space on the cam gears, it may not always be centered. If the belt is so far off the edge it is rubbing, then this is not the correct way. At this point it is in your best interest to retime your engine and tension the tensioner correctly. If the idler pulley for the timing belt has not been replaced, this is a good time to do this as well
