Sounds like you have an ignition/fuel pump circuit issue.

When you crank it with the starter, your ignition and pumps are on, so it starts & runs.

Then you let off the starter, so the ignition in the "on" position and your pumps & ignition shut off.

You turn the ignition to "off" and your ignition circuit turns back on, and the engine runs until it runs out of fuel pressure.

Maybe simply a wire swapped when you reconnected everything or a bad ground wire on the starter????
