ok confession time...having never delved into engines to this degree before I'm worried I will do something & mess up the timing, but the big cog with the timing mark on is fixed at TDC isn't it so I can't change that, so I shouldn't worry. I think!

Maybe this link in the projects section may help https://www.renault4.co.uk/forum/threads/r4-tl-restauration.7670/post-51742
A full restoration of a 4L done by @Jurjenz, everything very detailed and explained and his 4L transformed from scrap to mint.
Clicking on the link and the engine story begins.

About using the drill to lap the valves ,
You can do it , just use bit of flexible hose (like a fuel line or something like that )
To slide on top of the valve stem ant attach the other side to the drill , use a little bit of wd40 to dilute the paste, and modulate the pressure to allow the paste-wd40 mixture to go back on the lapped surface.
