In the old days, there were hot restart issues with chevy. Some wired up a ford starter relay on the fender well, diagram below. Because I don't know the exact cause of problem, I can't say the procedure is a fix. The diagram came from chevelles.com. I've seen timing issues that would load the starter to the point it had trouble cranking.

Thanks for your help. But do you think it could be the relay?

Are you talking about the starter solenoid, you don't have a starter relay. It's possible, it could be the solenoid. Sounds like something is getting too hot?
