Cooling fan upgrade

Escort (1172 Sidevalve) runs a bit hot. The two bladed fan is not moving much air.
Is there a simple replacement that will increase airflow?
Thanks,
Pete

Thanks, as suggested it required removal of the head.
I took it to a sympathetic machine shop and he pressed it out.

Distributor won't budge and I don't want to break the casting.
Any suggestions for nondestructive removal?
Thanks,

Fred, I'm close to LBI. My Escort has lived it's life in So. Jersey.
It's a nice mostly original car just needing hydraulics.
Cheers, Pete
