Here is how you can fix the shifter, I would recommend you do both while you have the body tunnel off.

Did you stick a bow on it or wrap it? Just to keep the suspense up, make yourself try to guess what it is. LOL
Sounds like a nice tractor, looking forward to pictures.

You can tear this down as much or as little as you want. I have seen people take it down to a bear frame and I have seen people leave everything in the driveline and engine in. If you want to do a 100% restoration you will probably have to tear into it more then if it was just a paint job. I will post pics of restorations other people have done tomorrow. I am using my phone and can't post pics.
That reminds me, there are videos on how to upload pics on the site. I don't know where they are. Lol. But I know somebody will post a link to the videos for you soon. I would look but again, im using my phone.

It turn out that there is a FEL manual in the manual section. It might have the line routing you need. There are also a bunch of other manuals that might help. I know that there is a manual for the '75 Power Kings and Jim Dandys in there. Here is a link to it.
Here is a topic that discusses painting techniques, it might help you out some.
When you say you want a wider front, do you mean a wider stance or a wider tire? They are just average spaced lugs so just about any five lug tractor tire should fit on it. The hub is just a standard trailer hub so trailer wheels will also work. You can just find a wider tire with a wider wheel and change them. If you want a wider stance just flip them to face outward like the are on the tractor with no hood.
For winter snow duty I put some truck tires onto my '75 with a set of aggressive chains. Personally, I would leave the AGs on but I can't tell you what to do, I can only give advice. Some people use turfs with loaders but it seems like those people are normally not satisfied with them. If you are using it for work where you don't need the traction I say go for it!
Since you say you like pics, here is my winter set-up on the '75.
