Inclined rotating drum

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
I am basically designing a rotary drum dryer and need to know the positions of the bearings for the dryer to be stable.
The drum is of length 17 m with diameter 3.24 m, inclined at 2° rotating at 3.24 rpm. I need to find the distance X and OY. (Given that Y passes through the center of mass) Weight of the drum =280 kN

2. Relevant equations

Moment= F x D = WD ;
Moment CW = Moment ACW

3. The attempt at a solution
I am trying to solve this using moments. But I am stuck with finding the centre of mass of the inclined cylinder.

According to me (and after reading alignments of rotary drum, they did not take into consideration the inclination), X can be found by : (17/2)/2 =4.25m (Is that possible?)
