From what little detail is in the invoice, it appears a lot was to be done by Owner. The blame may not lie with the shop. Jrock, what parts are shown in the left hand side of the invoice, under the M/C slip? If galley plugs are shown...

I have to wonder why one cylinder was sleeved?

One charge was harmonic balancer, which would make me think the machine shop installed timing cover and timing chain

Much better! Are you going to check the bearings?

The only labor charges I see are for pure machine work. "Assy prep & tap holes etc" for $32 surely doesn't cover assembly of the whole engine.

Yes gonna check the bearings. I thought about putting a big cam in it since it's easily accessible, but I'd also have to do lifters. Also gonna pull the intake manifold to check the oil galley plug in the back

On that invoice I do not see a line item for assembly. I bet it was put together by the owner which would explain all the oil plugs missing. When I built engines at the speed shop some owners wanted to assemble their engine because they did not want to spend the $120 (early to mid eighties) for me to assemble it. More than once they failed to install at least one oil galley plug. Most all plug kits don't come with all the plugs needed when a competent shop removes them all for hot tanking. My shop removed them all so that you got a completely clean engine.

Based on the invoice the shop did not build the engine. Buyer beware.

I checked rod bearings with someone that has more knowledge than me. Everything looked good and had correct bearings. I only ran the motor for a short period. Once I put everything back on, gonna prime oil pump and check pressure. If it still looks low, I'll check oil galley plug under intake manifold

Sounds good but it is only 12 bolts and a gasket to pull the manifold and verify that plug is there. It would be peace of mind for me considering the obvious ones the PO did not install. Besides if it is there I bet it ain't staked. Plus if you check now you would not have to re-drain the cooling system and all the other little things that you would have to do if you find an issue later.

On another note you do not have to assemble everything to prime the pump by hand to verify oil pressure. You can do it with the timing cover, intake and valve covers off.

Update,

the drill is corded and puts out 3,000 RPM's..

Glad you got it done and no damage. Other than gaskets!
