Default Estimating 89 inch lbs without Torque Wrench (Valve Cover Gasket replacement)

Greetings everyone. First time poster here. For my 1996 SL2, spark plug well #1 has oil leaking into it, and from all of my research it appears to be the valve cover gasket (which is the original).

I plan on replacing my Valve Cover Gasket, and I have all of the necessary tools except for the torque wrench. How can I estimate 89 inch lbs for tightening the bolts? Is this just slightly past hand tight?
