Massey 1105 Pro Tune

Hey Massey Guys,
A good friend of mine has a small farming operation that I help with a lot. He uses an 1105 as his main field tractor and has asked me to give it an in depth tune up.
The tractor has always run good, he keeps good maintenance on it but its got a few hours on and needs a little freshening, plus He just wants more power.
I work as a Technician at our local John Deere dealer and am there for relatively savvy on diesel engines(not a master tech or nothin').. but not all that familiar with Massey's in particular.
So I have a few things that I would appreciate some help with. I'm hoping one of you out there is a retired Massey Technician who will have all this memorized. lol

Ok first of all we had the injection pump rebuilt at a local diesel shop and while it was there we had them crank it up 20% beyond what it was doing when they got it. Which according to them was all the pump could do so I'm not totally sure it hadn't been turned up in the past.
SO.... I plan on advancing the Injection timing a touch to improve the fuel economy, clean up the way it runs, help it run a bit cooler, and make it easier to start. That is where I need your help. What do I need to know before jumping in to that? Is it pretty straight froward? Will I need any special tools? And where can I find an engine manual that is better than an IT?
Also are there any other fine adjustments that I can make to the fuel or other wise to get the most out of the higher fuel rate(and help it run smooth)?

Yes I am going to set the valve clearances. Should I make them different from stock (considering the fuel rate and timing changes)?

Also the turbo is getting loose, so we're going to be changing it. Thinking of going with some thing newer with a similar exhaust housing, bigger intake housing and faster wheels in it to reduce turbo lag. Any suggestions? Or things I should know?

So basically were not planing on having a sled tractor when we are done, or any thing outrageous like that. But the 1105 shares like 98% of its engine and trans components with the 1135 so why not use the potential? lol

Any way I would appreciate any advice from those of you who have worked on these machines and are familiar with their inner workings. THANKS!!
