My buddy had the same problem too! Our diesel pro told us it was a busted ring! We tore into it and sure enough it was!

a little smoke is normal, very faint! relocate that hose end and be prepared to pull the radiator before too long to clean the fins. you can't see the crap, but if the fan and shroud have a film of oil then it's in the fins, too!
