Getting back to the carb tuning. 14 is drowning the motor. Does the car blow black smoke out the pipes? I would suggest you not even attempt to drive it until this problem is fixed.
John here's a youtube link and pics of my car.

YouTube - Jeff's 72 Monte Carlo 383 stroker

I have ceramic headers on now and no the car was not blowing out black smoke when I was adjusting the regulator. I even made a test run around a few blocks after installing new pump and regulator and no problem. I said before I will adjust the pump down to 9 psi before I drive it again. Also when the exhaust get installed I will do a oil change, adjust the carb, install a 4 in 1 digital gauge to replace the ones I have now. My coworker will help me on the carb he good at that type of stuff. We pull each plug 1 by 1 and check the compression so every thing is good.
