Hard starting/smoking on start up 1992 6.5 turbo diesel

When engine is cold, regardless if its 25 or 75 outside, it usually takes at least 6 attempts before it fires up. While engine is cranking it begins to throw grayish smok out of the exhaust the entire time and when it does fire up its smokes like crazy for about 5 mins then dissipates and goes away. When engine is warm it runs great, no issues whatsoever. I can shut the engine off and it will fire right back up when engine is still hot. Engine hasn't used any coolant or oil either, engine has 257,000 on it
