Default Electric motor question

Ok I have a question your you electric guys.

Lil monkey stripped the screw holes in the can of his motor. So obviously it cant be mounted correctly. I had a Yellow can speed gems 2 motor but its a 9x2 and with his stock ESC it would hit 185 quick and shit down.....built in safety feature. So I took Both motors apart and used the can of the speed gems motor and everything else from the other motor he has been running. Will this be ok? I cant see how It wouldnt be but figured Id ask cause electrics arent my strong suit at all. He now is running an Epinity motor lol.
