I think the level scariness depends on how long your crayon is Harry :lol:

A guy who used to share my workshop once caught his hand in the fan of a Reliant Robin while trying a similar trick. Fortunately, it had a rather cheap plastic fan, so it didn't do him too much damage; however, he turned all the blades into the radiator, so it didn't do his wallet a lot of good!

Catching the tip of your fingers on the fan isn't too bad, I've done it before. However, the story is a lot different if more of the digit is involved, and you actually slow the fan down a bit. That would hurt a lot. I suppose for waxing the belt, just set the crayon on the inside of the longest run, below the alternator I would imagine. Watch your fingers on the alternator fan, and don't wear any loose clothing!!

when all else fails, rivets, cable ties and bodge tape will see you through
