Alan, I just compared your pictures to an old Rev-O-Noc No.5 1/2 that I have and noticed a couple of things.
First, your plane appears to have properly matched parts. At least they are the same as those on mine except for the size difference. This combination works fine on my plane.
If the blade is properly ground (25-30 degrees) it ought to work.
