Roger,

It does not, of course. My 1147 has always run hot, boiled gas in
the carb as others have attested to, stranded me a few times, and I
have installed an electric fuel pump just to keep going when it
really gets hot. The comment was made about the 1500 running hot & I
cannot imagine it running any hotter than what I have now, so for me
it may "solve the running hot problem".
