I still remember the DEC field service tech repairing an RC11/RS64 fixed head disk drive with a bad motor. He disassembled the drive to take out the spindle motor (which is also the platter spindle), sent it off to Appleton Electric Motors for new bearings, then put it all back together. Worked just fine, didn't even lose any data.
Clearly you're working at that level, which even by the standards of 1974 professional computer technicians is right at the top of the field.
