Previous owner has swapped tripods from side to side due to wear.

Inner CV joints (tripods) wear and they will vibrate. When vibration is too high, owner usually swap them from left to right and vice versa. Now you do not have vibration when driving, but small vibration when reversing. Usually you do not reverse fast and vibration is much less.

Check your motor mounts.
Set E-brake, look for unusual motor movement when engaging the clutch a bit in gear; forward and reverse.

Which gear forward, 1st or it doesnt matter, I asume that we need two people for doing this, one checking the engine and one engaging the the gear, is this the procedure?

Pick a gear....Any gear...
I look through the windshield, it's not a subtle movement.

Finally engine mounts are ok. Probably will be bearings and the inner CV joints as Mimi wrotte in a previouse post. I know for sure that I have to change the left bearing because it sounds when turning left.
