Question about 1988 Ford F 250
ALL THAT SMOKE IS UNBURNED FUEL,SO ITS GETTING TO MUCH DEISEL TO INJECTORS AND THEY CANT BURN THE FUEL OFF FAST ENOUGH SO ITS JUST BLOWING RAW FUEL OUT THE TAIL PIPE,YOU MIGHT SEE IF THERE IS A ADJUSTMENT ON THE PUMP TO RESTRICT THE FUEL,ALSO IF YOU RUN SOME GOOD DEISEL FUEL ADDITIVES IN THE TANK AT FILL UP IT WILL REDUCE THE SMOKE BY LIKE 20%. HOPE THIS HELPS????

Use Shell 15W40 oil ==
Do you know the history of your replacement engine?

To save time,I would do a high rpm (below REDLINE) highway ran to blow off all remaining diesel SOOT.
Let the shop to do a compression test. DO NOT DO THIS YOURSELF.

=== Stay away from biodiesel blend fuel until you figure out what's the cause of the problem.
Use Diesel Cleen silver bottle and see is there any improvement. ===
Add the recommend dose of SEAFOAM into the crankcase to soften the valve stem seal.
