Can you crush an outrunner with pliers? How do I know if its damaged?

I was trying to inspect my outrunner due to this gritty sound it was making but I was having a hard time getting it apart. In the process I may have put too much pressure on the outside with the pliers. How do I know if I damaged the motor? I'm thinking that if the motor was compressed the magnets may be too close together and possibly rubbing. I would imagine that would create a serious amperage issue. It sounds ok, at least that gritty sound is gone and it seems to spin ok. Besides just not running the motor how can I tell for sure?
