you can go by gut feel mechanism. Loosen IP adjustment bolts and then advance or retard IP per smoke and sound of engine. Sounds like your close enough that if you look into the IP governor plug hole (that 17mm bolt) and you may not notice a few degrees can only 'hear' them. You should be able to do this with the engine running.

I'd go into to detail but a) I've only verified timing, never adjusted and b) FSM explains the bolts that need to be loosened etc.
