Studders and stumbles..

LA 318 with edlebrock carb. Very limited wiring.

She recently started acting likes it's running out of fuel even though I ve filled her up.

The carb is fairly new, edlebrock, but has been running like a champ since I got the jeep.
Backstory: She still starts up fine cold or after it has been shut off for a short period of time. Ever since I got the jeep, it would be hard starting if she has been warmed up and then shut off for a lil, say drive to walmart, then try to start it after you checked out. But if I start it when cold, recently shut off, or after a good while (not cold but not hot) it starts fine. I figured the heat was boiling the fuel in the bowl as Ive read that was a common problem.

Otherwise the jeep ran fine. Monday the jeep acted like it was low in fuel so I filled it up (No gauge) and went on my way. It still continued to stumble and still does.
Seems like if Im at a decent cruising speed (45-50mph) she does it a lot. At a light it'll do it randomly as well when Im at a slow cruise. If I gun it, it reacts fine until you get a cat-like Hiss out of the exhaust. Under load up a hill is generally fine as well though it may or may not stumble.

This happens hot or cold. I have a fairly new MSD ignition module coild is still fairly new and all the plugs are pretty.

Im going to change the fuel filter just because I have one anyway, and I was kind of thinking it may be the manual fuel pump but wouldnt it be hard starting most of the time if it were bad? Imma smell the oil and see if it smells like fuel. No vacuum leak.

Any ideas? There is very little electrical on this thing. Coil, Plugs, Ignition, and lights make up all of the electrical components.
