Save the maya 8 file as a maya ascii file. Open it up in a text editor. Change the first couple of lines where you find a reference to maya 8 to maya 7. Save, open in maya 7, voila.

As an aside, I've had good luck recently changing JUST the line that says 'requires Maya "X.X"'. The version shows up in plenty of other lines, but I don't think you need to change them all.
