I'd suggest that you contact Stanley Tools directly to find out whether you can still get this as a spare part.

How do I assemble a Stanley #5 Plane?

Jerry, you first want to take account of all your parts to make sure you have everything you need. If you feel you do have all the proper parts then you'll want to start with the BOTTOM, the part that contacts the wood when you actually use the plane. On the PLANE BOTTOM you'll need the FROG, with a few adjusting screws and levers. The FROG is a very important part of the plane, in that it provides a surface to which other parts of the plane are attached'll be needing a long flat blade, sharpened and honed to a very fine edge. You should get these parts together and get as far as you can, then send me an email and I'll walk you through the rest of the assembly. Corky ( ,

I just received a new Handyman No4 but I dont know to where to set the adjusting nut! Does the "horse shoe" fit inside the plastic in the nut or in front of it? The instructions provided are not...

I'm not sure exactly what you're referring to as a "horse shoe". However, you will find a wealth of information on exactly how to set up and tune your hand plane if you search google for "tuning a hand plane" There are videos and books that deal with the subject exhaustively. Here's a link to one.
In general, I have only used a variety of wooden and cast iron planes, and so I'm not familiar with a plastic adjusting mechanism. I hope these instructions will help you nevertheless...
Here's a complete set of instructions for the No. 4 smoothing plane, that includes a list of the terminology used to describe the plane's parts. If you can, please read that and provide a more detailed description of your problem. The cap iron needs to fit tightly against the plane iron (or blade), with the iron protruding just about 1/32 or 1/16 of an inch beyond the cap iron. Then these fit down over the adjusting lever or cam depending on the plane, and the lever cap adjustment screw should be adjusted so the lever cap snaps into place with some force, but still allows the iron to be adjusted slightly in and out with the adjustment screw. The main adjustment screw is usually beloew the iron at the rear of the frog, that wedge shaped piece of steel that supports the iron.(Some people release the lever cap tension before adjusting the iron, but with correct screw tension this should not be necessary.) I hope that helps and doesn't sound like jibberish.
Otherwise, you may find better instructions with a detailed search here,

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

The screw to used to move the frog to adjust the throat is missing. Can I get a replacement? Is there another part of the adjustment assembly missing?

Auctions and search engines.
Some plane Mfgs. had custom threads made. Modern bolts and screws from the hardware store may not work. Take the plane to a genuine hardware store where someone will help.
There are typically 2 slotted machine screws that secure a frog to the plane.
The plane will work fine without the slotted frog adjustment screw near the brass thumb wheel.
Really old metal planes had no frog adjustment screws.
The new frog adjustment feature did boost sales though.
If the threaded bolt for the brass thumb wheel is missing it will need to be replaced so the cutter can be easily adjusted.
