SOURCE: I need the bolt torque specs
go to the local auto parts store and purchase a Chiltons Repair Manual on your car, it has all the torque specs listed for this. Or you could try the library and see if there is one there for your car and just look it up for free..... just write it all down.

when you say 'will not turn in' is this turn on?What happens when the key is turned to start?Does the engine crank over but no start?Or does it sound like it wants to start,or does it backfire and pop as it turns over,or is there nothing at all.Usually the simplest fault is that the plug wires are on in an incorrect firing order. This is 1-3-4-2.It may be difficult to establish number 1 on the distributor(assuming this is a model with one).But I am unsure if your friend removed them completely from it.So lets us start fresh.
1.No 1 cylinder is closest to the end where all the belts are running.They run in series along the sparkplugs 1-2-3-4.
2.Fit all the plug leads so that they fit well between the plugs and the distributor cap.Ensure that the order that they run is in the direction that the rotor spins inside the distributor cap.This model fits to the end of the camshaft so should be anticlockwise.
3.distributor cap may be marked with 1.If so then just fit them in order anticlockwise;1-3-4-2.at this end
5.if there is no 1 mark on cap,easy to just set as above,crank engine,if no start, backfiring or it runs roughly,just stop,move them all around the cap by one but staying in the firing order of 1342.you will only have to repeat this shifting leads 3 times max if you were really unlucky with getting the order out.As soon as you have got them right it will start fine.
You may still need to find out why they were oiled covered and fix this.Externally it may just be the valve cover gasket.Plugs oiled on the electrodes inside can be worn engine or other factors we wont cover here unless needed.
I hope this helps you start your car,or get back to me with your findings.
