Question about Poulan 42-Inch Steel Deck 17.5 HP Briggs & Stratton I/C Engine With 6 Speed
Well the plane of the spinning blades obviously is not parallel to the ground. While the ground will never be level, do what you can and first get the mower on a good piece of flat concrete. Measure distance between each corner of the mower deck to the concrete. You have had the deck off, the deck hang mechanisms have some adjustment so you can lower the front of the deck relative to the rear and vice versa, and lower the left relative to the right side, and vice versa. Look for threaded rods with adjusting nuts, pins which can go into different holes, etc.
As a last resort you could google "poulan, mower, manual" which would take you to their website and you can download the manual for the mower. All my mowers, MTD, Husq, Simplicity, came with a manual and had explicit instructions for this process. Most all these mowers are made by Roper or AYP and you may find information by googling those companies.
