Exhaust leaks.... Advice

Ok so I took it wheeling couple weeks ago. Everysince then I have what sounded like exhaust leak around the header. Went out today and I tool one of the header bolts out with my fingers. Yea it was that loose. I haven't put it back it because at this time I noticed another bolt that's not really a bolt. Some bullshit someone put in there. Also I have had a squeaky pulley and the belt is fairly new.tried belt dressing no luck. Any help is appreciated

one thing... before you crank 'er down tight again, blast the connection with some air incase any crud has gotten down in-between the header and the head. That way nothing gets pinched in the gasket.

Can you tell if it is a squeeling belt or is it a bearing somewhere? If belt dressing does not cure the squeel it may need a turn or two on the adjuster.

If you choose "search" above and type in just "tighten belt" you will see a bunch of different threads about how to adjust 'em, finding where the noise is coming from, etc... Depending on what you were wheeling in though, it may just need a good cleaning.

The BS in the hole is another story... May need to be pulled/drilled and re-tapped to put a new bolt in. Can you get a pic of the nonsense?
