Streaking when printing with gold ink on Vandercook SP15

I am having problems figuring out why there is so much streaking on this print job on my Vandercook SP-15. I was using 236# paper, and gold metallic ink. The thickness of the paper is always an issue but I haven’t had such bad streaking before. I’ve been adjusting the roller height over and over, and am now using 184# paper, and while it is better, the ink still looks uneven — particularly the lines of the tiger illustration. Can anyone advise on what else might be the issue?
