I don't know how long ago you asked this question, but the answer should be yes, you can use the '92 head for your '89 engine, but you need to check a few things first. First, visit your favorite auto parts store and see if the gaskets are the same. Keep in mind that a '92 head gasket kit may be different from an '89 kit, due to fuel injection vs. carburated engines, so check individual gaskets instead. While you're there, see if the camshafts are the same part number. Make sure the '92 head was made for a fuel pump. There should be a cover plate with two bolts that you'll need to remove to install your original fuel pump. If you are going to use the '92 camshaft, check that the cam has the extra lobe to operate the mechanical fuel pump. You'll need to use your original distributor, and also check the camshaft timing pulleys for similarities. That should be all you need to do.
