How to adjust blades and deck height on Craftsman 42" Lawn Tractor?

Craftsman Lawn Tractor, 20.0 HP 42" Mower
Model No. 917.288110

1. I changed blades to Mulching Blades #7133178 and when I disengage the blades I can hear them clanging on something as they are slowing down. Do they need to be positioned in a certain way? They are securely on the star center.

2. Also, when adjusting the deck - how high should the deck be from the ground in highest position and lowest position. In other words; for each number I can adjust it to what is the height of the deck from the ground?

Thanks for your help.
