Default Camshaft Removal

So I've replaced the cylinder head on my '93 SOHC and am looking at rebuilding the old head. I am not sure it needs a whole lot, it is coated with carbon and burnt oil, but there is no sign of impact on the pistons and the valves all look undamaged.

I have everything but the valves and cam out of the head. The cam is giving me problems and I don't want to force the issue and ruin what is probably a good cylinder head.

At this point I can't seem to get past the first two lobes before the cam jams up in the head. Are there any tricks to this?

Also, what specialty tools do I need (micrometer, spring compressor,...) and what parts have to or should be replaced during the rebuild.
