The dial only sets the height or the total deck, it is more of a stop than an adjuster.
If it seems too low in the front, you can adjust it by tightening the nuts on the 2 bolts/pins that are attached to the deck and the frame.
First of all, though, check your tire pressures, 10 psi in the rear and 14 psi in the front. If front pressures are too low, this will make a huge difference in your cut. You want to adjust the bolts an equal amount to maintain your side to side level keeping in mind that it should have 1/4 to 1/2 " difference front to rear.
Make your adjustments on your driveway or garage floor so you have a flat level surface to go by.
If you make these adjustments and it still scalps, you will either have to set the deck to cut a bit higher or approach the high spots from a different angle or remember to lift the deck up a bit with the handle when you get to those areas
Hope this solves your problem

SOURCE: I have a Sears Craftsman
I would Remove the gas tank, that is only a couple bolts, and that way you don't throw off anything else. Yes that bolt is a pain to get to, but tank is easy removal. Let me know if this helped , thanks mike. On the good side , longer you don't have mower working, more time for fishing :)

just bought a new craftsman riding mower. model lt1500. 17.5 hp with 42 inch deck. first time using I had the deck hight handle set on 6 the highest setting and still cuts grass to short, matter of fact it scalped the grass. anyway to set the deck higher. Its only 3 days old and still under warranty but the sears store is 20 miles away and I rented a trailer to go pick it up and hate to go rent another trailer to bring it back if its just a simple adjustment.
