My 69 F350 was bought as a cab and chassis. Rufus, a welder by trade, fabricated the dump bed that's on it. He then used it to transport metal, scrap and his larger welding rig to do field work. It...

If the smoke is white then it's coolant. Do a compression check. That will tell you if you have a head gasket leak or if you have a valve seating problem.

Got a brake power booster? Check the line off the back of the manifold for breaks/cracks. Sounds like a vacuum leak. Does this 'new' motor have all the EGR stuff behind the carb?
