FWIW, my old Sargent 418 (#6) has a Hock in it and still engages.

My only suggestion might be to adjust the distance (probably increase) the chip breaker is from the end of the blade. What this does, is to allow the height adjusting “finger” to be adjusted to be more nearly vertical/perpendicular when the blade is at the preferred cutting depth. You may have to also adjust the frog fore OR aft in combination with the chip breaker distance until you find a sweet spot.
