Are the muffler holes stripped out causing the muffler to come loose?
No. They are worn some bit seem good to go back in . I will use some lock tight to secure better.
Do you know whay there would be ahole in the back of the muffler?
MAybe it was worn from the vibration of being loose?
yes, there is a gasket behind the muffler and there should not be a hole in the rear of the muffler
FAntastic. Interesing that the gasket is missing.
yes, the vibration could have stripped out the block but it can be repaired.
The threads seem OK. BUt the gasket is missing and it wore the lplace where the gasket goes a bit on the block side.

A new gasket will seal that.
As long as threads are good and the bolts tighten up.
