desperate please help

I have 97 obs 225,000 miles (new to me 2 month's)
truck ran great on the 200 miles home no smoke plenty of power.
Next time i went to use it , it was hard to start. Knowing diesel's I figured it was glow plugs. SO i did the injector o rings gp valve cover gasket job. Truck started to use massive amounts of oil (quart every 30 miles) and smoked like crazy even after 150-200 miles. Figured i f-up the oring's went checked them all they looked good didn't notice any cracks in the cups and the exhaust side of the turbo is dry soot. Still using oil so i put rebuilt injectors in. Still smoking and using oil. Now on the way home the truck stalled 3 times (started right back up) and started making a tapping noise at when accelerating and higher rpm's and ideas. Sometimes she stutters until 2000 rpm then stops and the smoke minimizes. Doesn't throw any codes

any ideas
thanks ahead of time
