Which is the right tiller for a 912h?

I finally got a rebuilt 14hp for my 912h. So I'm wanting to do more with it, and one of my first stops is tilling. What is the correct model of tiller I need to be looking for and are there any other attachments I need to make it work?

The "matching" tiller is MFG# 1690039:

It has the spring loaded idler "made" for cone clutch tractors.  

 

The older MFG #990694 with the built in clutch "made" for earlier non cone clutch RBTs will also work (you have an extra clutch):

Most important is to get the required idler set (also shown above hanging):

It guides the belt from the cone clutch to the tiller:

Other older and newer tillers can also work; but I'd stay away from the single reduction tiller case models that require the hard to find idler set shown on the left in this pic:

If you, or anyone else for that matter, gets a tiller without the guide pulley  here  below are pictures/measurements  of the "get by" version I make in such cases.

This design with the slot in it for the upper pully allows me to most of the time use used pulleys I have laying around to make it work.
