Hi Pete,
Very good! It looks like you were able to get two magnets that fit perfectly. That is about the best case possible. If the motor has good bearings and good balance, which I suspect it does, it should last darn near forever. I would feel really good about putting a decoder in with that motor.
Most people have to use about 3 or 4 (or more) magnets and also use steel shims to fill out the space properly. Even under the imperfect conditions of needing to use shims, the performance is increased significantly and plenty good enough to use a decoder. Yours appears to be just about the best case I have seen.
Good luck and regards,
