I was always of the belief that a rototiller on an early Ford N was a no no. My belief was founded on a double gang rototiller that my father had bought at an auction and we tried to use. Our 8N had (and still has) the Sherman Combo transmission. No combination of gears were/are efficient to run that machine. We sold it.
For years I read the same from all those who would know.
Now, all that was thrown out the window about 7 years ago. A neighbor's son bought a rototiller from Tractor Supply and asked me to help hook it up to the 1953 NAA Jubilee.
I went there ready to explain to them that the tractor was not set up to handle a rototiller, BUT, I helped connect it to the tractor. I was flabbergasted. Running in first gear the rototiller did a nice job. It did take a couple passes but the soil was nicely tilled, ready to plant. I'll grant that the area was NOT sod but soil turned the prior year. I believe the tiller gearing was designed to work with the Ford. I don't remember the manufacturer's name.
