I am thinking the starter and maybe the solenoid switch too must get hot. That will not matter as long as it turns fast enough to start. This sounds a little like a vapor lock. Will it start if you remove the air filter? The gas line, does it have a pump and/or a filter. If you were trying to start a partly clodded fuel line. After the fuel line sits fuel would dran to the carburetor and pool in the carburetor. After it starts the suction would keep it running till the engine cuts off and you lose vacuum. Then the line would have to dran fuel past the partial stoppage till it can get enough fuel to the carburetor to start. This is just a guest mine you, but you may want to blow out the fuel line and change any filter then check the pump if any.

Let me know what happen.
