I also converted the sunroof and windows to manual so they would be more reliable. I haven't understood why these are so shunned compared to other models.
Ya I feel your pain I've had a 78, 79, and and 80. None of them had working stock AC but I did figure out a way to Jerry rig it all up. Pretty simple, just connected a simple switch to the AC pump and put a manual ball valve on one of the AC coolant hoses one the fire wall.

Shut the valve, then turn on the AC pump with the switch, And just turn the heat on and it blows out cold.
