It can, as the ignition would normally be set to the particular full advance figure.
All my literature says 34
degrees full advance for A65, and Triumph Unit T120 and T140 are 38 degrees F/A so the difference may not be as much as you thought, consequently, a Triumph would be a few degrees more advanced at low rpm which might be what's required as I think the advance ranges of the BSA and Triumph AAUs were similar (around 12 camshaft degrees - 24 crank degrees).
