Assuming that you are right, and the front timing chain guide is correctly located where it pegs into place between the cylinder and the head, and that you are putting the chain up over the cam, and then rolling the cam into place,
what you have likely done is to "loop" a link off of the bottom of the crank. Remove the flywheel to confirm and correct this.

Make sure the two cam bearings are pressed firmly down in the half-moon cut-outs in the head, otherwise they will sit kinda high and not allow the chain to stretch over them.

Maybe you could post up some pictures. You will have to slip the sprocket into the chain and then rotate the cam down into the journals. They are a pretty tight fit and you may have to do this several times before you get the timing right. Good luck, and stick with it. You will get it in there.
