Blower upgrade

Like many upgraders I have one of the cast aluminium blowers mainly used by 5" engines. It however is not man enough to provide sufficient wind for lighting a 7¼" loco.
Has anyone found the best way to increase its performance. I believe their original use was for water pumps in washing machines. Do I bend the blades, fit a larger motor or something else. Any suggestions will be welcomed.
