    Check the check valve that keeps the fuel from draining off when you shut it off . Sounds like you are losing prime .

    Listen to @Ridgeline and check the grounds!
    Then check the negative cables connecting all of your batteries.

    I had a similar issue and I had a lose ground wire. Also make sure all your wires are correct going to the starter.
