Ah, that's where my assumption fails, then! I must have a
close look at the cam in the dizzy some time. I suppose it
doesn't need to have a very sharp profile or short duration.
I just had a mental picture of a valve cam shape. Its only
the timing of the opening which is important, and even that
doesn't need to be nearly as accurate as the ignition points.
