Pull the front plug and turn the engine until it breathes on you w/ pressure through the plug hole. then put a dial guage rod into the plug hole and when it reaches top, that is TDC

Edit: A dial gage rod is not needed, anything that will fit into the spark plug hole will do. You can be sure your on TDC by looking at the crank pulley there are lines on the pulley and a pin sticking out from the front of the engine make sure the second mark from the right on the crank pulley line up with the pin

The difference between a 89 and 92 are the front bumpers. The only difference between the two fenders would be if the car is a fastback or a coupe. If they are both fastbacks (and different years), there is no difference between the two.Correct Answerthe difference between the fenders is.... on the later generation of the s13 (91-94) 240sx is that the have plastic pieces clip into the front bumper other than that there is no difference not even between coupes or hatches
