Yanmar 4GM Shift question

On my Endeavour 38 the engine when idling at high rpm has a tendancy to jump in forward. When engaging the shifter its a short throw. Reverse is a good solid move. Trying to figure out where to look. Just bought this boat recently and hoping it's out of adjustment. Also the engine blew white smoke a lot on cranking but leveled out after running a bit. Surveyor and several others said it was most likely clogged injectors.....been sitting awhile. Said to try fuel cleaner first but trying to decide which one to use with so many on the market. Thoughts were to put some cleaner in first then try and pump out the fuel before putting in new injectors. Engine runs smooth and cranks easy enough. Any advice or thoughts appreciated
Thanks
