Default 2 blade fan

I have a 2 blade fan on my 28 sport coupe I'm gong to replace the water pump would I be better off putting a 4 blade fan on rather than the 2 blade?
Thanks

The new aluminum 2 blade is best and looks by far the most original.

Have you been having over heating problems? If not, it aint broke so don't fix it. If yes, the fan is not the cause. Look elsewhere.

Stick with it. Mixed evidence has shown that 2 blades are mostly better than 4 blades in cooling. That and originals are somewhat safer than the aftermarket 4 blades - less rivets to come lose. If you stick with it, be sure to periodically check for cracks and looseness. But if you decide to get the nice repro 2 blade, you will have no trouble.
