The white smoke could be valve stem seals. The overheating could be a partially blocked radiator. Don't bother trying chemicals to clean it out. Take the radiator to a shop and have them professionally clean it. could be a blowen head gasket!

Indirect injection diesels have large radiators because of the massive heat loss in the idi cylinder head, so you most likely have a cooling fan or thermostat problem. Make sure you don't have air in the cooling system, especially if the engine sits higher than the original.
