Default Honeywell system type setting with heatpump / furnace

I have an American Standard Heritage 14 heat pump / AC (2 ton). I also have an Armstrong Ultra SX 80 (80% efficiency) gas furnace. What are the correct honeywell system stettings for this setup per this PDF? I believe it's option 7, but when I use this I have issues. Emergency heat and cooling work, but the regular heat setting causes the heat pump to strangely cycle on and off (repeatedly) and it fails to warm the house. Therefore, I have to use the Em Heat setting which operates the gas furnace only.

I tried option 1 for just an AC unit with a gas furnace, but when I turn on the cooling the furnace makes a really loud noise (as if a fan is ramped up all the way).

Here is the PDF: Page 54
https://customer.honeywell.com/resou.../69-2715EF.pdf

I'm using 170 option 7 for "Heat pump: Heat pump with backup or auxiliary heating."
180 not visible in menu
190 option 0 "Use this setting if you connected a wire labeled “O” to the O/B terminal"
240 not visible in menu
250 option 5 "Gas or oil furnace: Standard gas/oil furnace (less than 90% efficiency)"


Thanks

I just tried normal heat. It's obvious that warm air is blowing through the vents, but the heat pump continuously short cycles. It will run for a few seconds, then turn off for maybe 20 seconds, then turn back on for a few seconds before repeating the cycle. Is this normal behavior? Before, it seemed as though normal heat wasn't working, but I discovered I had the wrong setting for the heating cycle (incorrectly set to electric furnace).

No problem, thanks for the reply!

Just to summarize as my original post was kind of scattered and not well written:

I have a gas furnace and heat pump / ac unit. The heat pump short cycles on heat, but works correctly on ac. Just wondering if I could have a setting incorrect on the thermostat or of something else could be the issue.
