There isn't a 1st gear ratio slow enough to rototill with a Farmall C.
Even if you made up a set of custom gears, with the smallest input gear possible and the biggest output gear possible, for the slowest possible speed, it will still be too fast.
There just isn't enough room between the transmission's main shaft and counter shaft to get a super-slow gear ratio.
You could put a gearbox in between the engine and transmission to slow it down, but you will also slow down the PTO speed so the rototiller won't work right.
The only way I can think of to get a slow enough speed would be to use hydraulic motors to turn the rear wheels of the tractor, chain-drive. Leave the transmission in neutral, and just let the PTO run the rototiller.
