Default Mounting output tran and filter choke together

I'm finally building the "sit on a shelf and use" version of an amp I've been toying around with for a couple of months. While looking at how to layout the chassis I noticed that the power filter chokes and the output transformers have the same mounting hole spacing. This means I could mount them on the top and bottom of the aluminum chassis as show in the picture, saving a couple of screw holes and using the available space better. Is there any kind of interference that could occur here? It seem unlikely to me, but I figured I should ask.

As always, thanks....

Yes, Dynaco did something like this in the Stereo 70, but that channel always had a little more hum than the other one.
Maybe if the chassis is thick steel, or if an extra steel plate is under the choke.
