I gather that the bike is a cb350??, anyway the adjustment is located underneath the intake manifold (where the carbys are bolted onto) in the centre, it is a bolt head with a fixing nut.
Essentially you set the flywheel timing to "T" on number 1 cylinder, then you undo the locknut, then undo the bolt head nut about 1/2-1 turn, this allows the tensionioner to take up the slack, then tighhten the bolt head nut, then tighten locknut.

I replaced a timing chain and one side is seems to be loose how can I fix it?

Easiest first, double check you have the right timing chain. Are there guides or followers that may be worn, or out of adjustment.

How loose can the valve timing chains be and still run?

There is a tensioner and being loose is not as bad as wear, you might notice some backfire noise when the wear gets excessive.

Loose chain

Many believe that removing a link will fix chain slack, this will not work if the chain has stretched over time. Take a 12" ruler and align one end with a pin and see if another pin aligns at 12". Any pin that extends beyond 12 1/8" indicates that the chain is too far gone and requires replacing.

You must replace the timing chain and the tensioner assembly as well as any other parts that you find worn such as sprockets and guides. All this requires special tools and the timing cover to be removed.

I am told the timing chains are loose. The engine makes almost pinging type noise when accellerating at low speeds or uphill. How is this fixed and at what cost? What if problem is left unresolved?

the engine is pinking thats all ,use a higher grade fuel ,it should run on 95 octane but try it on 98 octane and this will cure it .timing chains loose ?? i think this mechanic needs to go back to school

My ranger jumped time, how do I fix it?

If you are referring to the ignition timing, then there is a fault in the engine. The timing chain or belt should not be loose enough to jump a tooth. You are going to need to replace the belt or chain and ALSO find out why it was loose. In the case of a belt, it could just be due to age but unlikely as they are made to not stretch too much.

Problem whit my timer chain

I am going to have to assume this is a 4 cylinder with a timing chain. Probably a 22R or 22RE engine. This is not a small job. The cause of a loose chain is attributed to 1. timing chain stretch 2. the plastic guides break or wear away 3.the tensioner is no longer tensioning. The fix is to replace timing chain,chain guides, and the tensioner, while you have the vehicle apart it is GP ( general practice) to replace the front crankshaft seal as well as valve cover gasket and half moons, be sure to check your water pump as well for leakage and or bad bearings. Do a tune-up, adjust the valves and youll be good as new! Buy a Haynes or Chilton book for teardown instructions. Hope this helps ya!
