IAC effecting start time

Engine cranks 5 - 6 times when cold. If IAC electrically disconnected starts with 1/4 turn hot or cold. This engine has a rebuilt TB and new IAC motor. What could be the problem? Checked for vacuum leaks, can't find any. Vacuum measured when running, 20 "hg and steady. Any ideas? :roll:
