3208t WHITE SMOKE AND RUNNING ROUGH

DAVID R HELLO OUT THERE. I HAVE A 3208T WITH 94000 MILES ON IT. THE TRUCK SMOKED SO BAD I SHUT IT DOWN. I HAVE CHANGED THE NOZZLES, ADJUSTED THE VALVES AND PUT A NEW DIAPHRAM IN THE INJECTOR PUMP. AFTER I DONE ALL OF THIS AND SPENT 500 DOLLARS. THE TRUCK RUNS BETTER BUT HAS A BAD MISS IN IT ABOUT 1600 TO 1850 RPM. I KNOW THE 3208 CAT HAS OVAL PISTONS AND ONLY 2 RINGS PER PISTON. BUT EVEN AFTER ENGINE IS WARMED UP TO TEMP (180) IT STILL SMOKES. I THINK IT IS IN THE TIMING.TO ADJUST TIMING I PULL THE PLUG OUT OF THE FRONT OF THE ENGINE TO PUT IN A 5/16 COURSE THREAD BOLT INTO THE CAM, THEN PULL PLUG OUT OF THE INJECTOR PUMP ON THE PASSENGER SIDE TO SLIDE IN TIMING PIN. BUT BEFORE I DO ALL OF THIS I HAVE TO PUT THE #1 CLY. TDC..IF BOTH PINS WILL NOT GO IN I HAVE TO TAKE OFF GEAR ON INJECTOR PUMP AND TURN TILL BOTH WILL INSERT? I NEED TO KNOW IF THIS IS CORRECT? ALSO I NEED TO KNOW IF I NEED A SPECIAL TOOL TO REMOVE GEAR IF NEED BE.ALSO WHAT SIZE IS THE PIN THAT GOES INTO THE INJECTOR PUMP AND IF A DRILL BIT WOULD WORK? IF YOU COULD HELP PLEASE E-MAIL ME AT triplespool@yahoo.com OR E-MAIL ME YOUR PHONE# AND I WILL CALL YOU BACK. THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.
