Load test battery... free at most auto parts stores. A weak battery will supply low volts to starter and overheat starter. START with battery (load test!). Bob

My vote is for bad contacts in the key switch or solenoids. Perhaps bad terminals. I would first jumper the solenoid. That eliminates almost the entire circuit.
