C4 on our old Cougar won't go into park even when attempting at the transmission lever.

302 is from a 91, C4 date is unknown. Car shifts in all gears but will not hold park anymore. Used to be able to hold it into park but that was a battle. Sometimes it catches now but you know that is going to let loose at a bad time someday.

How to adjust it so it will stay easier? Can that be done?

There are a few possabilities - could just be your linkage isn't quite making the detent on the park position, you may need to break it loose push the trans lever fully into the park positon - put the shifter completely into park then tighten it back up. Otherwise you may have a really worn shifter bracket or maybe the park pawl inside the trans has seen it's better days... :>(
