spark plug cam

i just replaced my spark plugs and now my jeep sounds cammed..

could this be a gap issue or something else?

also my fan is really loose, any ideas how to tighten without taking off the front end?

any feedback appreciated!!

When you say cammed is it missing / ruff idle?
I assume this is the radiator water pump fan if so there are 4 bolts facing the water pump and 4 facing the fan clutch if these are tight then the inner bearing is going out on the fan clutch.

yeah it's idle is really messy, what is an ideal gap for the plugs?

all the bolts are tight, it's loose on the bearing and the pulley also feels loose, it tightens with the belt but shouldn't be loose

Factory gap should be listed on the sticker on the fan shroud or radiator support (provided it's still there)
