Check the fuel filter when they get plugged, engines run sluggish.
Check air cleaner
If this is a low milage rig and has been taken care of it might be the fuel pump, but if its got alot of miles on it, it might just be tired and worn out.
Hope this helpsl.

When you say a little off??? What do you mean? Not as powerful, slow to react to input?

Loud clicking noise and black smoke...

Seems like an injector and valves. Check if all injectors are giving same pressure, none leaking or damaged, the injector pump working fine and all filter in the pump are clean (yes there are small filters inside under every electro-sensor), get valves gaps checked and adjusted. at this kind of mileage its a must.

Over the last couple of days there seems to have developed an issue with the engine. It seems to be down on power and will not freely rev over 2750rpm. When you put your foot down it takes forever to build...

Firstly, check the air filter and its piping, that there is not any restrictions. secondly, check, with the engine running, to see if any of the air intake hose are collapsing in on themselves, this would indicate a bad hose thats breaking inside and so , collapsing.
Hope this helps
