Reverse vibration!?

I`v got 6-7 ours on my PS 190 from `87 this spring, but i`ve noticed that when i back it up the boat vibrates alot. I have looked at the propellar and its not that. So i wonder if i should replase the water lubircated shaft bearing? I may think thats the problem, but do any of you guys know what dimentions it has?? Like: lenght, outer dia. ...?
It`s the 1" aksel
Thanks for any help, and sorry im Norwegian and did not ace my english class

They are the strut bearings, and if you talk to Vince at SKIDIM.COM he can get the size you need.
I just replaced mine. I had some slop in the shaft. the noise in reverse is a lot quieter now.

Welcome, Karsken. www.skidim.com. If the prop's okay, just work your way up the drive train.
