“White smoke should not really be involved on a startup.”

Strongly disagree. Most all diesels especially older mechanicals will throw white smoke ie un burned fuel when cold. White smoke can also be attributed to other issues but doesn’t normally go away after engine warms if it is do to mechanical failure. That Lehman is pouring fuel into those cylinders when it it first starts. All of that fuel is not going to burn until engine warms to designed operating temp.
