As long as the bearing is free to turn inside and the collet butts tight against it without touching the motor mount you can run it on the inside as you have it.
On my 2028 mount the motor shaft hole was a little too small for the 8 mm thrust bearing to go inside it. But big enough that the thrust washers were just barely overlapping it. That's why I made the plate for the thrust bearing to ride against.
