81 300sd smoking

I just bought an 81 300 SD that has been sitting up a while. The odometer shows 159,000 miles. The car isn't the best cosmetically, but the price was just a little more than scrap price. It runs good and the transmission shifts fine, but it smokes quite a bit. I'm a farmer and I've had quite a bit of experience with naturally aspirated diesel motors, but we've only had one tractor with a turbocharged motor (a 354 Perkins in an 1105 MF) and it smokes a lot because the seals in the turbo are gone. Does anyone have any suggestions about where to start looking? I hope it's not a case of worn out rings or something like that.
