no check engine light seems a little weird.

Did you get fuel right before any of this started?

I am not 100% knowing the ins and outs of the BB mod. Is it possible or quick to go back to stock and see how it likes that?

At first, with the random misfire and white smoke, I was gonna say CPS but, without CEL it is unlikely. By chance, does the CEL light come on when you first turn the key during the bulb test? This happens everytime you turn the key to on. Maybe the CEL light bulb is burnt out.

This happen to me when I first got my truck it would run fine unless you got down on it and start shaking and missing and white smoke it turned out to be the sending unit filters were clogged up and pickup foot broke off I did the hutch mod with spin on fuel filter and it solved my problem, the fine screen filters In the sending unit were almost completely stopped up, I'm not saying this is your problem but. The hutch mod is one of the best to start with

UVCH will probably not be the issue. White smoke with an engine shaking is more than likely unburned diesel fuel. If the harness's were an issue, the cyl's wouldn't be getting fuel and not smoking.

I didn't think of the in tank filter. That is probably more likely. A fuel pressure reading would be nice if you have the gauge.

You can pull the fuel filter and drain the housing. Then, have someone turn on the key and watch how fast it fills the housing without the filter in. Shouldn't take any longer than 15 sec or so. IIRC.

It takes me about a hour to do now I have done a few for friends driven diesel sells the complete kit with instructions very detailed for like 175 bucks well worth it my stock fuel filter last forever now. Guzzles web site has detailed instructions that I read a few times before I got the kit in that helps. The worst thing is getting the plastic nut back on the tank the first time I did it it took me about two hours. Run the tank down to almost empty it helps that I have a four inch lift. You need to buy a pickup foot also seperatly just incase yours is broken and laying in the tank. Only has one plug and two lines to disconnect with some cheap quick disconnect tools you get at orileys a whole set with like six different sizes is like ten bucks. And two straps holding the tank very easy if you have any mechanical ability

Before I did the hutch mod to see if that is the problem I disconnected the fuel line from the pump under the drivers door and blew compressed air back into the tank and drove again she ran great for about a day until the screens sucked up the trash again

You can pull the fuel filter and watch it refill the housing or do as t-ray-4ray said and lightly blow air back into the tank from the fuel pump.
