Rocketer, you are over propped, or have a plugged exaust. If a diesel smokes more than briefly it's being overloaded. This will either "tulip" the valves or put a hole in the piston sooner or later.

I have seen it happen a couple of times in my farm equipmment repair business. It will happen when the wind is on your nose and all you want to do is get home and you won't even notice the smoke in time. Fix it! It will blow at the most inopportune time.
