The firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. typically counter clockwise.
Firing order is stamped on the top of the engine in the intake manifold
You may have to cleanup the sludge buildup if any to see it.

Do you mean you need a diagram for the spark plug wires? The firing order of the engine is usually molded into the factory intake manifold, and most distributor caps have the #1 cylinder location marked on it. For a more detailed look at it, try to find a repair manual for your truck.

Need spark plug and distributor wire diagram for dodge ram van 1994 with 318 engine

if you have a friend to turn the engine over, little by little without starting it would help or better yet, pull the cap off the distributor leaving the rotor on, and with number one sparkplug out, cover the number one sparkplug hole with your finger but don't stick your finger in there, it'll get crushed, get your friend to bump the engine a little at a time, and when you notice a sudden whoosh of air take note of where the rotor is pointing... hello number 1, then clockwise or whichever way the rotor turns, apply the firing order... by the way it is 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2... good luck.
