Angry Carburetor/Choke? issues

I am having a problem with my 90 Wrangler. A little background..Had a fuel dumping problem..removed the carb and cleaned it out good...replaced the fuel filter,etc... She started right up and ran excellent just yesterday. Test drive and everything was perfect. The next morning, I went to start her and nothing. Just cranking. I think the choke is the should i proceed? Wide open? Closed? Once running she is fine. Need to do something temporary until I get the funds for a rebuilt or new carb....

Did you make sure the wire going to the choke housing has a good connection?

When cold, the choke plate should rotate closed.....& then slowly open as it warms up.

If you took the choke housing off, the inner spring has to be engaged between the tongs of the inner arm & then rotate the housing until the choke plate just closes completely before you tighten the cover screws completely.. You'll have to move the throttle slightly to let it do so.
