Facing the engine, look down at the top, left of the crank pulley. You will see a post sticking out of the block. With the engine running, if you shine a timing light at the post you will see six notches on the pulley itself, right at the edge of the belt. Going from left to right the notches represent 10ATDC, TDC (red), 10BTDC, 20BTDC, 30BTDC, 40BTDC. The Top Dead Center notch is actually painted red, all the others are either rust or grease colored depending on how bad you valve cover gasket is leaking. Keep in mind this is only for the initial timing at idle of 20BTDC. Any rpms beyond idle and the ECU takes over the ignition timing, you have very little control here. The method for setting is to unplug the throttle pos. sensor, set idle to 650 and set to 20 BTDC. When you reconnect the TPS the rpms should increase to 750. Either way 750 is your optimal rpm and all adjustment must be done with the TPS disconnected, only disconnect and reconect the TPS with the ignition off. Never yank it or plug it in while the car is running. P.S. Try to keep all of your fingers here, its a tight spot to see down to those marks. ---Brandon Garretson ------89 240SX

What are you trying to do? Timing marks can be found in service manual.

first, remove the spark plug from #1, bring piston to TDC(you can see the piston in the hole or use timing marks on dampener pulley) then remove dist. cap, where the metal piece faces is #1 then goes counterclockwise 3 4 2. then you can turn the distributor itself to tweak timing once the car is running

Yup. you must transfer the whole wiring harness and the ecu though, the job is easy and straight forward, everything is plug and play

Look at pictures, or know that 89-90 have a sohc ka24e and 91-98 have a dohc ka24de

>>"What type of valves does a 1989 Nissan 240SX have?" what exactly are you asking? the factory motor for the 240sx's, years '89-'90, is the KA24E, single cam, 2.4 liters, 12 valve. It has two intake valves, and one output valve.

116638 is fairly low mileage, but they did not make the 240SX until 1989. My 89 coupe has around 136000 on it (don't know exactly because someone tampered with the mileage)

It should be around 80 lb/ft. To be sure look in your owner's manual or call a Nissan dealer. Do not over-torque or you will warp the rotors.

It is an electronic speedometer. the sensor is located on top of the transmission. When I looked into getting a new one for my 89 it was about $80 new.

Possibly the timing belt has failed. Check the timing marks in orientation to #1 cylinder TDC and distributor rotor.

I have a 91 240SX and had a similar issue, my Fuel Pump had to be replaced.

It could be the timing chain guides. 240sx engines are notorious for this. The timing chain guides are made of cheap plastic and they wear out and break off after time. When the engine is started, the pieces get kicked up from the bottom of the oil pan and make a racket for a while. I don't think is causes much harm, though.

Yes, even though the front bumpers are different the fenders are the same
