smoking 300D

We have a 1976 300D that smokes continuously. We've explored many directions, could it be a wrong setting on the fuel injector?

You mean...

the fuel injection pump. It could be the pump, and it could be a bad injector(s). It could be a number of things.

How many miles/KMs on the car?

"We've explored many directions, could it be a wrong setting on the fuel injector?" What directions have you already explored?

You are not really giving us much to work with here...

I thought smoking is one of a diesel vehicle's many charms.
