Angry Choking to death??????

Just yesterday my jeep started choking while driving. I pulled over and gave it a couple of good shots of throttle & cleared it up. This morning I fire it up to warm, runs good for 10 minutes and starts choking & blowing some black smoke, not too bad. It finally died & now wont start at all. It has a full tank of gas, I am still running the carter carb, could this be the problem??? HELP PLEASE!!!!!!

Pull the carb off and wash it down with lots of carb-cleaner ..

Put it back on and see if it starts for you. Leave the air-filter assm off so that you know its not flooding due to lack of oxygen.

Let us know what happens after that ..
