Please explain with full details and we can work from there.
If you are loosing power under load I would start first with installing a fuel pressure gauge and monitor the fuel pressure while the problem is occuring.
Okay try adding some fuel and then check your fuel pressure if it still looses power after you add the fuel.
You need to connect a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel supply line down stream of the of the pressure regulator and read the pressure.
No, low fuel pressure would not produce exhaust smoke, what color is the smoke?
White smoke can be caused by either your burning oil which usually has a bit of a blue tint to it or coolant which is white like steam. Black smoke is usually due to over fueling causing a rich condition,
If its blueish then its likely oil , my first thought would be either rings have not seated or there not staggered correctly.
Well if it pushing blue smoke its usually oil, you may want to give it some time and see if the seat.
See if the rings will seat which will seal them if you are sure you got them staggered right.
If the smoke is blue then its oil and there is no way to check seating and or the staggering with out pulling the pistons.
Like I said, if its not a loss of engine compression then I would start with installing a fuel pressure gauge and monitor the fuel pressure.
