when I lived in Dallas (generally hotter than Houston), I never had
problems with my '74B overheating. It was basically stock (no electric
fan), but minus the smog pump.
On the other hand, when I took the car back to the UK, I had to block
part of the radiator to
get it to warm up on winter days.
YMMV, and I think that (over) heating issues varied as the smog
equipment changed on the B.
