Maybe try increasing warm CP and then richening up the idle control screw to get back to 12.5 to 1 idle and see where the cruise is then.

I dont know much how that freq control valve effects things as i have no esperience with it in my 79 930.

Good luck,

Good advice. FWIW, when the lambda system is in open loop (unplugged sensor) the frequency valve will default to a fixed duty cycle, if I recall it's 50% but would have to look it up in the book. So the freq valve then becomes a constant that you tune around.
The other unstated possibility is that the AFR gauge isn't properly calibrated and is reading richer than it really is, since the car seems to idle so much better at 12.5...which is really pretty rich for idle. But each car seems to have it's own sweet spot.
