I had the same thing happen. I got the tank out, but it wasn't easy. Take out the bolts out that hold the rear end on. Take off the two springs that support the seat. Take out the battery and the battery tray. Take out the 6 bolts that hold the black cowling and the front of the green platform to the frame. This will allow you to lift the seat platform far enough off the rear end to allow the tank to be pulled out through the side. You also have to remove the metal bracket which holds the front of the tank and has caused the tank to leak in the first place. New tank is $56.00 not installed. I used a soldering gun and melted the plastic back together. I think it will hold quit a while. I know this is a little sketchy, but It worked for me.

First off, Mowerman's response was incorrect about the age of a JD 317. They were made from 1979 to 1982.
You can only get manuals either through here: http://techpubs.deere.com/deere/Default.aspx or from a dealer. They're expensive. You can find them on ebay and also here: http://www.ssbtractor.com/tractor_manual_display.cgi?m=John%20Deere&o=317%20Hydrostatic but I haven't used that site.

I believe you to be correct in your diagnosis.
1) remove the fuel tank
*this will give you an idea of how lines are routed and fitted into tank
2) install a new hose through to tank fitting and make sure to retrieve the old hose & filter inside the tank, so that you can attach the filter to the new hose. The filter is weighted so that it falls to the lowest point to pick up fuel.
