Engine mount : Dont buy from agents. Buy from Autozone or such like.
Source another ignition from a breakers yard. Dont pay more than half the price of a new one and shop around. You can attempt a repair but lose many hours in the process
As for the cooling fans you can hardwire the fans to work permanently with the ignition on. Run a wire from the ignition switch straight to the fans.Just wire an inline fuse into the circuit to protect against fire due to shortcircuit. This is not recommended but is about the cheapest way of :"cutting corners"

Banging noise under hood when i decelerate

The first thing to check is the motor mounts. If they are good check the transmission mounts. The front axle on an AMC Eagle is mounted on the motor. If the motor mounts are bad (real soft or broken) parts of the front axle or motor can bang around. Same with the transmission mount -- it can let the motor and transmission shift around and bang against the floor of the car.

Is your radiator cooling fan operating when the A/C is turned on? The cooling fan should be running at all times with the A/C on. If it does not, then your problem is being caused by a bad cooling fan motor, a bad cooling fan relay, a broken fan motor circuit, or broken fan control circuit.

When iput my car in gear i can fell the motor raise up with a thump noise also fan belt makes a winning sound

The Motor raising up issue is, you may have a worn or broken Engine or Transmission Mount, inspect the mounts by having someone or you, look at the mounts while someone else puts the car in gear. If you see the mounts move excessively, than the mounts need to be replaced. The whining or squealing Fan Belt may be a worn, glazed or loose belt. I would inspect the belt and tighten or replace as needed.
