There is the old trick of get 'em hot and bleed 'em again. Sometimes they just need to be warmed up a little. At least that is what worked on my old 914.
Then again, you never did tell us why you started messing with the brake system in the first place... was there another issue that now the new pads are no longer hiding?
At the end of the day, when I am totally frustrated, I just open all four bleeders without touching the pedal and allow them to drain through. I keep adding fluid to the resevoir while they just keep dripping for awhile. Your mileage may vary.
Is it possible that your "buddy" does not understand the finer point of hold it to the g damn floor until I tell you that the f'ing bleeder screw is tight??? I have had a few of those in the past too
