Maybe 3?

3 am, so, I could be wrong, but having thought about it, the maths indicates:

17 wheels, 2 standard links and two inverse links. Effectively, both sets cancel the other out, which leaves us with the 17 wheels. An even number of wheels would lead to 1. An odd number of wheels will lead to 2.

So... 2.

Now I feel like an idiot for not figuring it out in your way...

Actually, the quickest way is to determine the direction the first cog is going (left), and then just move along to the next one and the next, following these rules:

- if it's just another cog, switch direction (from left to right or vice versa)

- if it's a linked cog, don't switch direction

- if it's an inverse linked cog, switch direction

And then just do that for each of them. Left, right, left, etc... Last one is left so 2.

But I like Reacher's way better. More logical, more mathematical.

How I did it without even looking at the comments. Easy with a little patience and double checking. :)
