I don’t want to waste any more money, so need to find the root cause, so open

Fix the seals to stop the smoke or is it something else the cause?

do a compression test and leak down test to see what's worn in the cylinder , there is no magic gunk that you can add to fix internal engine problems it has to be torn down

it may be running rich , that's something you can adjust in the carburetor or replacing leaky intake gaskets
