Would electrical tape wrapped around a lawn mower fuel line stop a leak at least temporarily?
It probably would if it's a small leak, but I wouldn't depend on it. All I can picture in my mind is the tape coming loose or the hole getting bigger while I'm using it, the gas getting on the hot engine, and the whole thing catching on fire. My suggestion would be finding a neighbor who would let you use theirs until yours gets fixed properly.
Yeah it can temporarily seal it provided you apply it well but I would recommend you get that leak fixed permanently as wrapping with electrical tape will be a temporary measure. You may use a seal mixture like the ones used by plumbers. Just take a piece of that doughy seal(see that it is non inflammable) and apply on the leaking area and let it set. After that apply a tape over it for a temporary measure.

Why does my computer sound like a lawn mower?I have a very loud computer. I am pretty sure my neighbors can hear it right now. It is quite annoying. Is it possessed or is there a logical explanation behind this?

I have a lawn mower with a 3.5hp Briggs and Stratton engine. I put a new primer bulb on the carb...today and the mower will only run for a short time until the fuel is gone from priming it. It won't start then unless I prime it again then it will die and won't go until it's primed. Would you know...

I have personally had chirpeactoc work and it has alleviated a tremendous amount of pain. Would I have skipped all that pain if I had been adjusted as a newborn? I was a c section baby because the cord was wrapped around my neck.
