Sunroof jammed '72 300 SEL - help!

I bought a '72 300 SEL and the sunroof is stuck in the almost closed position. That is, the back edge has not lifted up into position. The previous owner removed the headliner from the sunroof. The manual override in the trunk only turns a very small amount in either direction and someone has tried so hard to turn it that the bracket holding the gear housing is bent a little bit. The motor has been detached and the gear box is fine.
How should I proceed to find the fix for this problem?

I think I have found the problem. The cable is damaged at the point where the sunroof is almost totally closed. I can now open the sunroof. But, my factory manual does not have any info on changing the cable, removing the sunroof, etc. Can anyone direct me to an information source? Thanks
