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.

Now that spring is here its time to take out those Tractors so they can cut all the grass and mess, but once it starts having trouble it can be really frustrating. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, I was searching in the Manage My Life website and found some great links. I have attached the links below. Hope this helps!
