Hello Farmer
 If the Detroit clears up after warming up a few minutes ...i would say you have air in a line or 2.
White smoke is sometimes raw unburned fuel. I might get a little flack for that one. The white can also be coolant but I dont think so in this case.
I am not a diesel mechanic but did help to get a Hd5 going after sitting for about 10 years.
I eventually got a book on the 2:71 series engines and learned how the fuel lines are routed.
There is a return line that takes excess fuel back to the tank. This part could be interesting on your power unit.
On the crawler the fuel tank is behind the seat surrounded by big batteries.Its HEAYY...yikes and the lines are of course under it.
Anyway the return was buggered up and would not let the fuel circulate.
There needs to be a restriction in the return line as well or all the fuel will go to the tank instead of the rack.
 Once we got the linse repaired the engine worked awesome.
A lot of people like the detroit but not its exhaust...a good muffler and tall stack will help and earmuffs are required for pretty much any engine.
 I think with a little work you are going to have a sweet running mill...then new to you friends will show up needing your lumber.

Hi Farmer,

I just posted some pictures in a new topic "Belsaw modifications" that will give a pretty good picture of the normal Belsaw board scale. I think you can see how it works from the pictures, but ask if you've got any questions.
