Do you have BOTH wires connected to the coil (+) terminal? The one from the "R" terminal on the starter provides a full 12 volts to the coil during cranking (and is apparently connected), and the other one, which is the resistance wire from the ignition switch that provides reduced current with the key in the "on" position - if this second wire is not connected, it will run only in the "start" position.
