Default Recommendations for cooling of BBC in a 69'

So yes my current setup hasn't gotten the attention it needs, hence this post.

I have a budget 2 core crossflow summit aluminum radiator product link,
Dimensions : 25.25 in. Wide, 19.75 in. High, 2.25 in. Thick.
Core : 20.750 in. Wide, 18.000 in. High, 2.250 in. Thick

Mechanical 6 blade Flex-A-Lite fan, probably this one, with 1-3/4 distance from fan base to radiator.

Stock Tall water pump

No AC, Manual trans.

I am running 190F on a 50F day, then it climbs to 200 pretty quick if I am sitting still. No wonder as it is lacking a fan shroud! So I am always worried about the temps running away, now I gotta fix it.

I would love some recommendations for either fixes for my current setup, or a nice fit combination to drop in, radiator with electrical fans or as big dave probably will say a mechanical fan (I read the sticky thanks)

Comments? Open to suggestions.
