I believe you to be correct in your diagnosis.
1) remove the fuel tank
*this will give you an idea of how lines are routed and fitted into tank
2) install a new hose through to tank fitting and make sure to retrieve the old hose & filter inside the tank, so that you can attach the filter to the new hose. The filter is weighted so that it falls to the lowest point to pick up fuel.

It should have the mixture on a lable near the fuel filler cap; something like 40:1, or 50:1.Home Depot sells small bottles of 2-cycle oil for homelite engines. Mix one to a 1-gal of gasoline.

Great job with the description of the symptoms. What you are describing is a classic case of vapor-lock. In other words, a vacuum is forming in the fuel tank and not allowing the fuel to flow to the carburetor.
Look at the cap, it probably has a small vent built into it. With a little compressed air, blowing from the outside in, try to clear the obstruction. This may not work, but don't worry. Just replace the fuel cap. Your local lawnmower repair shop can probably get a new cap for you. Otherwise, go to www.homelite.com click on the parts tab, enter your model number (starts with a "UT") and order a new one.
