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.

This is common for the 70 series.Clutch dics are stuck together,just short of splitting tractor you have to hit a pile of dirt with loader bucket to see if you can break it loose.

could be bad gas, but it sounds like a choke problem. did it sit over the winter with less than a half tank of gas in it. try putting some rubbing alcohol in the fuel or draining the tank and disconnecting the gas line so you can drain the gas out of the carb. also check the gap of the spark plug and make sure that is correct. when was the last time there was fresh oil put in. also check the air filter, it could be full of dirt.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the ideas. I will try your suggestions. Tractor used for snow blowing during the winter and gas did not stay in it long. Good ideas!"

Please check for the anti back fire solenoid in the front of the carb. Check whether the wiring to it is fine and if it is getting +12 V. If yes then you maybe required to replace the solenod.
However, if this doesn't resolve the issue then you would need to adjust manually so that decompresser works normally. Inspect the flywheel key as well, it may have sheared.
Check the carb filter and the make sure there is no sign of water in/around the carbeurater. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.
