I get 35 crank revolutions, which brings the chain around 9 times before the silver links and the dimples re-align.
Each crank revolution turns the chain through 25.71428571% of its length, so it takes 35 revolutions of the crank to get to the first whole number of chain revolutions, which is 9.
One revolution of the chain turns the crank 3.88888888888889 times. The first whole number of crank turns is after the chain has gone around 9 times, turning the crank 35 times.
It will appear to be extremely close at several points, notably 4,8, and 12 revolutions of the crank, at which points the chain will have gone around 1.0286, 2.0571, and 3.0857 times respectively. Basically, every four turns it will look quite close but it ain't perfec,t and the more multiples of four the crank is turned the further off the chain gets. But multiples of four is when it is closest.
