Those symptoms are more akin to secondary spark. Plug wires, leakage, cracked insulation. If it were a 1200, I'd say you were lugging it. But the 1500 should pull decently even at those rpm's. Connect a timing light to the plug wires and see if the signal gets erratic or goes away.
Libraries are full of stuff I don\'t know.
