Mine slips a little under pressure after getting into top gear. Can it be adjusted without taking off the hogs head? Advice please! and thanks!!

Ken -- Yes, it is done through the inspection cover on the hogshead. The Ford Service book tells how, as does the MTFCA Transmission book.

It's not difficult, but remember to stuff rags all around the outsides of the tranny so when you drop something it won't go to the bottom. (Also remember to remove those rags when you're finished. :-) )

Not if you have the square hole hogshead. The worse news is that you can't try out the adjustment without replacing the hogshead. If the adjustment is incorrect you have to do all over again.
On a 1910 I owned years ago, the clutch slipped badly. After considerable worrying, I decided to adjust the set screws twice what I would normally do if I could test the adjustment. Lucky for me the adjustment was just right and I only had to remove the hogshead once.

Yes, of course I have the square hole hogs head so I'll have to bite the bullet and take it off. After that I shall follow the book. Thanks guys. Ken.

Ken, what year is your car?

Title says '09, hence his question.
I never worked on a real '09, so I did not know the answer for certain. But I thought what Richard G said was that case.
