Classic symptom of an HEI ignition module that is dying. I would recommend to start with replacing the ignition module. Many performance aftermarket ones are available.

It will look like this and it bolts to the base of the distributor. Access it by taking off the cap. You may have to remove the rotor as well, can't remember.

Thanks Mark,I'll try that!

Could be a wire with a fusable link heating up to the starter
