There's one critical aspect to mounting the tines. Each has a cutting or leading edge, identified by a beveled or somewhat sharpened edge, and a trailing edge. You have to know which way the tiller will rotate when mounted and engaged, in order to install the tines so that it's the leading edge that does the biting.

Most tillers turn so the rotation is in the opposite direction of the tractor wheels as it drives forward. That is, engage the tiller and put the tractor in neutral, and the tiller will pull the tractor backward. But a few are designed (or mounted backward) so that they turn in the same direction as the wheels (strangely termed "reverse rotation"). That's why you should test your tiller's rotation direction before mounting the tines.

This is actually backward. A standard rotation tractor tiller drives the tractor forward while engaged, and a reverse rotation tiller pulls against the tractor while under power.

You most certainly want the standard rotation. Standard rotation allows the tiller to roll over roots, etc., rather than snag under and try to pull then out.
