It's a little hard to figure out what you're saying, even harder since you don't use periods or capital letters. All I can add here is the starter (or wiring to it) might overheat and smoke if the engine is jammed for some reason and the starter can't turn it - or - it might smoke if there is a short somewhere in the starter circuit.
Once again, I'd turn the motor (clockwise) by hand with a socket on the crankshaft and see if it can move freely so you can determine if the problem is mechanical or electrical.

BTW, as far as know, you can't hit the (chain?) tensioner with the head, I don't understand you there.
