I commend you for using a dial indicator to get a qualitative answer.

On a side note, a motor introduces torque via a moment from the crankshaft. You are introducing a moment into the tranny input shaft via an arm and a "pushing down" force. Some of that force is pushing down on the input shaft and into the tranny case. Curious if you get the same deflection by "lifting up" the torque wrench.
