I need to set the timing on a 93 festiva

You need a timing light (assuming that it is the ignition timing that you want to set)
Locate the timing mark in the crankshaft pulley and mark it with chalk or tippex.
Locate the timing marks on the engine front casing.
Have the engine at operating temperature and connect the timing light to the #1 plug or lead(you can do that with the engine running if it is an inductive timing light with a clamp that goes over the cable).
loosen the distributor clamp and, with the light aimed at the timing marks and the engine at idle, adjust the distributor until the crankshaft mark lines up with the specified advance mark on the casing.
Tighten the distributor clamp and remove the timing light.
Be careful of pulleys, belts and fans, all can cause serious injuries if fingers, hair or clothing get caught up in them.

I have a 1990 festiva and it will run until it gets warm then it dies.

It sounds like an ignition problem. Next time you are experiencing the problem, check to see if spark plugs are firing.I would guess ignition coil.

What are the engine timing specs for a 1989 Ford Festiva please ?

I have got Ford Fiesta -89 (European), and there is a Distributorless Ignition System, DIS, behind the motor. Haynes & co`s repair book says you can`t control it, it need special tool(s). So maybe to Ford garage?
I am interestning for that too, there is selling gasoline with 10 % ethanol, so it`s octane is higher.

1991 ford festiva replaced alternator new

it is part of the alternator actually on a lucas unit, a small black box bolted to the rear of the alternator.

You may have a faulty ignition switch or a corroded engine earth cable causing the alternator not to reach charging voltage.
