After changing the seals on my Volvo diesel Fuel Injection Pump I timed in incorrectly with retarded/late timing and got alot of billowy white smoke. The more I advanced it the less white smoke I had. From your description and the symptoms I had my guess is that you IP timing is slightly late. As the engine heats up the fuel burns better and the smoke goes away.
