White smoke is usually an indication of low combustion temps. Get an infared heat gun and check the temperatures at each cylinder at the exhaust manifold. I difference of more than 50 degrees can give you an indication of a problem in that cylinder. The test will be most accurate under load or shortly after being placed under a load. The temp for #1 should be close to #2, #3 should be close to #4 and so on.
