You are using padb8a.tfm, a raw font that is not set up for
use with tex. Similar problems can occur if you use font
names ending in 8r. It is intended that you use one of
padb8t (a T1 encoded virtual font, normally for use in
LaTeX) or padb7t (an OT1 encoded virtual font, normally
for use in plainTeX).

These two fonts have complete tfm files containing the
Metric information necessary to set spaces.
