For a truck of that vintage, seeing one "puff" of blue smoke when you start it in the morning should be okay. Anything beyond that, you need to keep an eye on it.
You also need to consider how many miles you have on it, how well it has been treated and whether or not all of the glow plugs are in tip-top shape.
