Default 85 Marathon Engine Swap??

Are there any good engine choices that will work in a 85 Marathon?

The 85 belt goes side to side. You would need to mount an engine accordingly, and you would have no reverse. Things to think about.

I'd try and find an 89-93 axle if you're trying to stay cheap. You could at least mount the engine normally.

Or a 93 up 4 stroke rear axle would be best so you can have reverse.

You could use an old snowmobile engine, but it needs to be a piston port/reed valve type if you want reverse because they'll run backwards. Some older Ski-Doo Rotax engines used a rotary valve instead of reeds and they will not run backwards
