Get a single pole single throw (SPST) toggle switch (10 to 15amp rated) and install it on the dash. Wire it into the 12V+ power wire to the distributor.
All you are doing is switching off the spark momentarily for hot cranking to take the cranking load off the hot starter.
Crank it over 1-2-3 count and throw the switch and it will fire.

If using a MSD box (or most other boxes) the switch goes on the small red power switching wire that controls the box on off.

You will also find this switch useful for cranking/turning the motor for valve lash setting etc And as a simple anti theft device.
