Radiator fan clearance problems.

Need help. I have a 1934 ford fordor sedan with a 350 chevy engine. I only have 1 1/8 inches from the water pump pulley mount to the radiator. I installed a 15 inch flex fan. The engine slowly just keeps heating up to 230 plus degrees, so I have to shut it down. Is there a mechanical fan that will work or even an electric one. Total distance from the radiator to a fan belt is approx. 2 5/8 inches. The radiator is 17 in. x 22 in. The water pump centerline is approx. 8 1/2 inches from the bottom of the radiator. Any suggestions? Thanks.
