I’ll tell you Steve, from what the pics show and you are doing, the iron should be good.

220 grit is definitely far enough to take the sole of the plane for flatness, but I’m wondering if there is still a small nick somewhere on the sole that is causing the tracks. Maybe one of the edges?

Edit: Probably obvious, but did you ease off the corners between where the sole and sides meet just a bit after flattening? A sharp edge there might mark up the wood.
