Thank you in advance.
Sure happy to give you some guidance. Dont write these #s in stone as of course you could be fatigued more than I can predict when you get there.

Narrow stance will vary a ton depending on how you normally squat. I would guess you could count on a 10% decreased from your normal max. I would think about the same for close grip (some notice little difference). Kaz press I suggest using a curl bar. I start with the 25s on each side and add weight each set. It will not take a lot of weight to make these work.

As far as deadlifts from the pins go. Normally you will see people pull about 20-35% more on a high pin than from the floor. On the bottom pin normally a similar # to their max. I personally SUCK off the bottom pin and I am less than my actual max. Hopefully that answers some of your questions.
