What RPM does it start bogging down at? Is it a 'smooth' loss of power or misfiring? Has basic maint. been kept up?

Check for exhaust restriction , 10 years is lots of time for nests and all sorts of things to get in there. Loosen at manifold down pipe JUST for test purposes and see if there is any difference.Let us know the results.
