I do not see the model number 1-03017 anywhere on my list....You have the correct number?
1-0300 is a 1971 Raider 10
1-0310 is a 1971 Raider 12
1-0301 is a 1972 Raider 10
1-0311 is a 1972 Raider 12
I haven't heard of anyone having a number to show the order of manufacture, but I could be mistaken.
Wheel Horse was bad about using "left-over" parts for other years of tractors, thus it is often difficult to determine the actual year of some machines. Even though you have a tractor with a different hood/grill, doesn't mean it is a different production year!

thanks very much i rechecked the # stamped as 1 0301 7, my sheets and other sorces say it should be an 8 speed but it says right on the decals raider 6 speed

Well, the 8 speed is 3 forward and 1 reverse with a High/Low shifter making a total of 8 gears (speed)
My B-80, and Raider 12 are both like this..........
