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 have the same problem same year, same model. I changed the drive belt and it still won't go up steep hills that it used to easily climb. I don't see any way to adjust tension and it doesn't cover that in the operator's manual. What did you find out with yours?
