Simulating an engine to evaluate valve opening vs crank angle?

Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and would appreciate some help in the following project.

 

I have drawn up a simulation of my race-motorcycle project, which comprises of a piston, crank, valves, camshafts and rockers.

 

I have added sensors and a motion study which rotates the engine (all parts move as they should) but now I'm stuck!

 

I wish to get solidworks to create graphs/spreadsheet data comparing valve opening against crank angle - how do I do this?
