If you overload methods, then you should maybe (for space and visual consideration) use type descriptors.

eg:

method1() -> method1()
method1(String s) -> method1(S)

etc..

This may not work if you Objects (which String is), but for simple types should be understandable.

I have seen many many unwieldy UML diagrams, and usually just ignore them and hit the code.

The more detail the better, I have included method signature with return type in all of my sequence diagrams, the variable names were similar to object type names.
