Hand plane set up question

Barry Irby
I bought several hand planes at an auction. One is a Union 14" long. Sharpened it and cleaned it. put ti back together and tried it out. Chips went between the blade and the cap Iron. (???) They appear to mate well with the cap laying very snug on top of the blade. What am I doing wrong and how do I correct it?
