have you put oil in it and then started wit wit hthe doghouse open and got under to track down any of the leaks?
is the smoke from the tailpipe after its fully warmed up?
oil leaks in and of themselves can and will cause smoke if the oil is getting on the manifolds or exhaust pipes.. the smoke will come from under the bus, sometimes into the cab from the doghouse, etc..
oil leaks can be from many many things.. many times they are quite fixable without a ton of work..
the best thng to do is take it one step at a time even though it seems overwhelming at this point...
often these engines were used in many vehicles other than busses.. and you can read online about where others may have had the same type oil leaks you find and how they fixed them..
