HI, im not an expert by any means but it sounds like you need a tune up. Your RPMS can be adjusted to rev higher to prevent stalls, the problem could be with your carb or distributor either way a tune up will address these problems

thats what i would suggest too! i would also check your fuel filter and fuel system in general. make sure enough fuel is getting where it needs to be.
