Question about 1988 Dodge B250
Yurn the engine over by hand until the 0 timing mark on the crank lines up with the pointer. Trace you #1 plug wire back to the cap, lift the cap and see where the rotor is pointing. If it's not at #1, or very close to it, you are right. #1 is the front plug on the driver's side. If it is lined up then you have another problem, likely related to overheating.

The order should be stamped on your intake manifold right under the air cleaner.
My '97 1500, 5.2, 318 firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
Hope this helps

First place I'd look is at the thermostat. However, if the hose did not rupture in a normal manner and blew apart, I'd also suspect that you may have a blown head gasket. In that case, compression is entering the cooling system which is not designed to handle such high pressures, therefore causing the hose to explode). This will also result in rough running you observed.
