I could be wrong but try this,let the locking cap go and take it off the plane back the iron into the plane with the depth adjusting wheel.
Now turn the screw that hold the locking cap in place just a 1/4 of a turn down, put the locking cap back on and press the cam down.How does it feel ?Tight loose? turn the depth of the iron with the wheel how dose that feel tight ? loose? if it is loose take the cap off again and turn the screw a bit more put the cap back on.
Keep doing this till you can feel the weight come on the adjusting Wheel,you should still be able to adjust the depth with your thumb andfore finger.Turn the plane over and look down the sole from front to back set the iron out with the wheel till you can see the iron coming out of the sole.
Adjust the iron for square with the lateral adjuster, good?
Back the iron back into the plan and now your ready to plane take a run at the wood and little by little sneak up on the wood take just a whisper the more and more till you get to where your taking of what you want to.Give it a go and see.
