This depends on whether the engine is equipped with a distributor or with EDIS (Electronic Distributorless Ignition System). If EDIS, there is essentially no adjustment. If distributor, you remove the engine cover inside the vehicle and loosen/turn the distributor like any other. Get an aftermarket manual such as Chilton or Haynes for detail of procedure.

They are on the harmonic balancer but are they on the drivers side or on the passenger side?

If it is a distributorless ignition system, you don't. The timing is all handled by the ecm. It picks up the signal from a crank sensor in the block. It has a reluctor wheel cast in the crank.

Ignition timing is set on a 1989 Acura Integra by setting the distributor to the appropriate angle. When set at the factory recommended angle the car will turn over with no problems.
