i got an 84 xr 250 in bins and buckets, im 95% done, but am having issues installing the cam, it seems like the cam chain is too short, any advise?

Did it kink on the lower end? Mine did. Just jiggle the kickstarter while pulling upwards on the cam chain.

Did you take the tension out of the cam chain tensioner mechanism? If you didn't, it is almost impossible to install the cam sprocket in place while the cam tensioner is set in place. Pages 149 and 150 of the Clymer Manual M328 explain how to relieve the tension in order to install the cam sprocket.
