When my '97 (basically stock) has been sitting for a day, it will belch out a nice cloud of whitish smoke for the first 10 - 15 seconds or so, then run clear.

If I start it several times during the day, there is no smoke.

Is this something I should be concerned about, or is it "normal"?

This usually means one or more of the glow plugs aren't working. Test the plugs and harness. A new White Rogers relay really helped my starts even with new plugs.

stancor gpr is 35$.

Its relatively normal for these trucks to smoke on the first startup on a COLD day.
