How tight should the lever cap screw be? Not that tight. Tight enough that the blade doesn’t move on it’s own, but loose enough that you can adjust it with the depth adjuster and lateral if the plane has one.

Lie Nielsen has some very good youtube videos and in many of them they’ll even suggest a certain number of turns of the screw, say a quarter turn to give the tension you need.
