excessive white smoke is a sign of coolant entering the combustion chamber. (white smoke is steam) are you loosing coolant?

I was until I changed the lower radiator hose. I think I burned up a couple rings or valves. Had firing order wrong and drove for about 30 miles so I think I am going to have to rebuild. Cause now I can get it to start and seems to run correctly until I put it in gear. Now it doesn't get over 10 mph.

make sure you haven't plugged up the exhaust. a back pressure test would let you know if that system is still good to go. A fuel pressure test would be nice too. just to be sure that's ok

Exhaust and fuel are good. I am just going to try and find a used motor or try and rebuild
