Too much smoke..please help

I own a 80 CJ7. It recently started smoking really bad while driving even coming inside through floor boards on passenger side. (white smoke)..I ran it in the garage and cant find anything but minor oil leaks, but did find smoke rolling out of the bottom pulley. Not sure what it drives. It's a 258 inline 6. Acceleration is real bad also. Any info that can help me figure out what is going on with it would be appreciated.

How much smoke was coming out from around the pulley on the crank? Was it just burning oil there that had dripped down or was that where most of the smoke was coming from. Or is most of the smoke coming out of the exhaust? Pull your plugs and check if any of them are oily.
