Timing the valve gear does really need experience to avoid engine damage. It is a difficult and long job which again can be greatly helped by some special (yet very simple) tools. As indicated to you, I just did it on one of my Fulvias.

Engine bearings are very long lasting if the oil is changed every 3000 km (regardless of use) and the oil filter is also replaced.
