Can`t tell you much about the buzzing except it is trying to tell you don`t run it till you know what it means.Buzzing sometimes indicates low fuel pressure.Diffucult to tell whats up from your discription.I would start with a compression check.Then a tune up clean and set the points .010. new plugs.DO NOT ATTEMPT ANY IGNITION REPAIR OR TESTING WITHOUT A MANUAL.
It is a CDI system and is easily damaged with improper use and repair.A manual will also tell you carb settings etc.I`m also betting the fuel system should be checked from tank to carbs with
special attention to cleaning.
