Put the OEM blades back in, and see how it works with them. The plane was designed to use those irons and chipbreakers. Unless there is something UNDER the frog holding things up? Took apart a #4 one time,that wasn’t working right…only to find someone had added a steel plate under the frog….”to help seat the frog better” didn’t.

Stanley #4, Type 10…..OEM iron and chipbreaker

Stanley #8, Type 7..original iron and chipbreaker
