Use the pins.  It inserts between the axle and frame then attaches to the rocker shaft.  I will see I have have pics of the old 314 with it in place.

A few more 

 

I took the pics before I cleaned it up and removed the lift arm.  I think you can see where it attaches under the tractor in this pic.

In this pic you can see two mounts that attach to the bottom right and bottom left side of the axle assembly.  IIRC they serve as the pivot point for the tiller.  Do you have those?

Has anyone found an easier way to install the tiller? Wrestling it into place is no fun at all.

I totally agree with you on that.  I used to have a 33 tiller for a jd 140 I had.  I also used it on a 317.   You have to align it up just right to hook it up. 

The 33 tiller does a great job tilling, but one thing I found is I needed ag /bar tires on my tractor, because the tiller was strong enough to push the tractor if I dropped the tiller  too  deep too quick, and the bar tires helped to keep the tractor from sliding forward.  And I also welded up a bolt on front bumper/weight holder so I could add a couple of the 42 pound john deere weights on the front of my tractor to keep the front tires in contact with the ground to steer the tractor.  That tiller is heavy.

 

You asked if the pick up bar for the tiller is the same one for the sleeve hitch.  No, they are different lengths.

I have turf tires an factory cast weights on the back plus the tiller right now. I saw a listing on eBay for a guy who builds weight brackets extentions an grill guards for the 110 on up into the 300 series. I thought about the weight bracket for the front for suit case weights

I think so.

FWIW - the 314 in the pics had the late style plastic weights with wide turf tires when it was used for tilling.  I don;t know how it worked but I have noticed many others use the turfs.   Unless you have problems steering, I would avoid the front weights.
