Does the engine smoke when it is running?
How about your transmission? Have you checked the fluid level?
There should be a plate in the cab and a dipstick on top of the transmission.
Is your valve cover gasket leaking?
Valve cover gasket is on top of the engine probably where your seeing the white puffy smoke coming from
Check the valve cover gasket on top of the engine while it it running see how much oil is coming out
Any news today?
To check for blow by crank the engine and take the oil fill cap off and put your hand over where the cap goes if it blows your hand off more than likely you have a piston ring problem or a head problem also please rate me when you have a chance
If the frame is that in the way of the oil pan you should be ok but you will have to pull the head off to get the pistons out I would remove all engine coves before I tried pulling the head off
Let me know if you need any more info and please rate me when you get a chance
