First thing you want to do is get a ruler and whack your brother's knuckles for using bar's leak. IT isn't going to fix a headgasket problem. IT will create a flow of coolant more likely in your cooling system by plugging up the rad, heater core or thermostat for example, but a headgasket problem needs to be addressed correctly. The head has to be pulled and sent to a machine shop for evaluation of cracks and machined if okay.
IF the timing did go out, there is a fair chance there is some damage. This engine is an interference engine, meaning when it goes out of time internal parts can collide and can leave you with a no start situation. Bottom line is stop cranking it and pull the head and see what happened inside.
