Are u putting your old chain on a new sprocket?
Wheel should be in the forward third of the adjustment range, that's the correct number of links.

Two links (min possible without resorting to a 1/2 link kit). But, extending chains and running multiple master links reduces reliability and is generally considered a kludge.

I guess I should explain a little better this is only temporary with a used sprocket on a used chain. Only to see if I'm going to like the 47t sprocket. Then i will order my 520 kit.

Guess it would be too easy to figure out difference in number of teeth between old an new sprocket an that should be equal to the number you need to add provided its an even number, I'd say +1 on using rivet masterlink even tho I'm not sure how safe it is to use two master links like one or two links away from each other I'd say that a lil unorthodox and if it a temp thing I'd say use it temp as in like two ten min rides.

Even with the extra links there is gona be some resistance getting chain around the back sprocket. It not gona be like throwing a sheet over a bed. You may need to use old school bicycle chain method where you get it started (on bottom) an spin the wheel forward.
