I'd be interested in learning how to tune up my hand plane. I'm looking for all the basics including the names of the various parts, their function etc. In other words, "planes for dummies"
style instructions.

Search that topic here, I'm sure it's been covered before. Or search YouTube. If none of those help, Rob Cosman has a video called "Hand plane revival" that gives detailed instructions.

A number of sites have the parts diagram in this link, but this is the only summary of the hardware thread specifications I have come across so far. Useful to know the threads when restoring. Now and again folks force fit replacement screws which are lost or damaged.

It is a Record plane site, but Record followed the Stanley design for bench planes.

Plane tun -up

The Woodcraft Store near me, (Canton, MI.) regularly has a Saturday class on plane tune-up. I got to believe that other Woodcraft Stores are performing similar classes and training.

The Canton, MI. Store (Ford Road) is giving a free seminar on that exact subject Saturday September 14, 2013 at 1:00 PM.

Can you tell I'm near the Motor City; "Ford Road", "Plymouth, MI."
