It's true that Raleigh cottered cranksets used a different threading (26 tpi) than standard English 24 tpi, but I *believe* all the cotterless cranks used standard English 24 tpi threading. So no, that wouldn't help you. The Suntour friction shifters are by no means rare, either, so there's little point in substituting this one's unit (which would render the mixte incomplete). On balance I would say the best bet is to fix the Mixte up and sell it.

BTW it looks to my uneducated eye that the front fork is slightly bent.
