I'm surprised you can't simply adjust the wheel enough. On my Magnas I did have to remove the "insert" in the right side dropout and put a bolt through the derailleur to allow more rear movement of the axle.
I'm not quite sure what you mean, if you mean move the axle rearward thus adjusting tension - I don't think that's an option ;

(old chain/old pic, hoseclamp as chafeguard to protect aluminum chainstay - don't need it anymore & fixed tensoner)

If you mean space the hub/sprocket to driver's right to allow more clearance for chainstay/chain - I don't really want to do that as it's in line with the engine's 10t so perfectly now...

or... am I misunderstanding?
