Buzzing under back seat Type 44

Try removing the fuel pump relay and put a wire link in its place so
that the fuel pump will run continually with the ignition on but
engine not running. This should confirm if the noise is from the fuel
pump. If you dont want to use a wirelink just swop the FP relay with
its extra ignition sensing pin for a standard relay that is doing
nothing important in the fusebox.
A fuel pressure gague would confirm a faulty fuel pump. My only other
thought is that the fuel filter could be clogged up.
