    Could be the clutch fan, at higher RPM's it may not be keeping up.

    Overheating

    I'd check out the radiator first. Sounds like it isn't cooling effectively. Maybe too many bugs in the cooling fins. JMO

    Overheating

    It may be partially blocked, and the result is like running a radiator that is too small for the engine. It can't keep up with that heat the engine generates.
