Gamefisher 15 outboard

Hey all⛵️
Just started having problems. I know it's an old girl but has served me well. I replaced the water pump just recently and all was fine. One pull start but has always been a little touchy at slow idle. Now she is really smoking a lot and died on me in the middle of a mooring field. Is this a lean / rich adjustment? Maybe oil/gas ratio? I did recently replace the old gas tank with a new fangled one. Any ideas?
