That sounds good if the motor spindle bearings aren't also positioning the drum spindle.  The equivalent is generally true for fixed head disks, I don't know what drums do.  Obviously if it's belt driven, or if the motor is mounted in flexible brackets, then that isn't an issue.

This goes back to the earlier discussion about not dismantling parts that are involved in precision alignment.
