White smoke help. With videos!

hey guys my dad and I just finished up a frame off resto on a 97 f250. ill make a thread on that some other time but right now im curious why its smoking like this. a little info: only 96,000 on the truck. including the engine. diamond eye 4 inch exhaust no chip. is this amount of whitish smoke normal?? you cant see it in the videos the best but it smokes a little just idling

edit: the motor did sit for around 7 or 8 years without running. my dad did turn it over by hand every once in a while tho

I know that the worst thing for engines is to sit, even if you turn them over by hand, gaskets can still dry out. Is there any oil if the fuel/ water in the oil/ oil in the water? Injector O rings/ cracked injector cups could be the culprit.Sorry that I could not be of more help.

15 min seems long enough to be warm. Someone correct me if I am wrong, but white smoke is incomplete combustion of fuel, black smoke is uncombusted fuel, and blue smoke is oil in the fuel/combustion chamber.

For some reason you are getting incomplete combustion. Poor compression? bad rings on the pistons? Does it have any blow by?

gotta make a tool, and pull the glow plugs, pull the oil fill cap while its running and flip the cap on top of the whole upside down, if it blows the cap off your gonna need rings
