Try your amp with his PS.

Put his tubes in your amp.

> Can the amp be run with just one tube at a time to test each tube?

Test the tubes in your amp.
> How much risk am I taking if I try my good tubes in his amp???

Put his tubes in your amp.

> Any ideas of what else to look for?

Make sure you have continuity in thr B+ and B-  lines all the way from
the PS to the tubes. If you have a HV voltmeter, measure the HV at the
tube anodes. Are there any fuses in the B- line?
