replaced IAC now hard to crank and won't start

I recently had the fun of two beeps every minute and the engine stalled and wouldn't start so after a little digging decided to try and replace the IAC valve.  I'm pretty sure this was the issue since when I tried to restart before the replacement I still got the beeps, none now while cranking but the cranking seems labored and it won't start.  Batteries tested fine, any ideas?

    Iac should have nothing to do with a hard start. You could always try to put the old one back and see if it starts. I think perhaps you have multiple issues going on.  I would try to squirt some gas in the intake to see if that gets it to run. If so then you know you have some sort of fuel problem.
