Well,  theres no way to know how hot it is unless you measure it, namely the
oil  temp.

If the air flaps are opening, the cylinders and oil cooler are  clean and 
clogged with dirt or mouse nests, the tin is all in place,  the bellows is 
place and not torn, and the mixture is about right it  really cant overheat
unless your crossing a desert or pulling a boat on a  hot summer day.

Have I missed an overheating  cause?

Not that I can think of. If he's having a heating up issue in 20 or so  
miles, I'd think missing some tin, or what you listed above. I know I've  
personally ran my 65 Notch (with a stock 1600 and dual Solex carbs) for over 16  
hours straight, and not shutting it off in that entire time. It was also 
about 2  weeks shy of a year ago with air temps in the 90's (return trip from 
Carthage,  MO).
