What do you mean, head bolt torque test? Like I said, you will want to timesert or risk having to repeat the job. It'd be foolish to skip this step.

The only way I know of to test the rings is to do a compression test once you have everything back together. There is no test for the bearings themselves afaik. The solution would be a rebuild. :/ Without knowing how far your friend went, and how low on oil, we can only speculate. There's a reason you are supposed to pull over and turn the car off immediately.
