I agree with Jack. Running without an ORC is challenging, and a bit dangerous in certain circumstances. That being said, I run a '52 8N with a brush hog and have learned how to do it (after a few eyebrow raising incidents) without hangups on a regular basis.
Ya know, Steve, there is one other solution that Jack did not mention. Get a second N tractor!! Mount the sickle bar on one and taa daaah!! Problem solved!
