you may need to advance the timing a little.

That would be my assessment as well check glow system, OP said smokes then clears when warm, white smoke smelling like fuel ?

Yep, my dad's old farm truck (also 1999) GMC 2500 did the same thing with the smoke show, and exact symptomology. We changed the glow plugs, and relay (just because), and that fixed the issue.....no more smoke show. Ran smooth when cold (albeit noisey) and even better when warm.
