89 inch pounds -- make sure you get a special smaller torque wrench. While some big ones go down this low, they aren't accurate that far to the bottom end of their range. A good rule of thumb is to avoid going within 10% of the top end or bottom end of a wrench's range.

Oddly enough, we follow that same rule of thumb with micropipetters in chemistry lab.
