the mounting bolts of the mafac calipers are screwed into what seems to be a bushing or sleeve that's integral to the boss. this bushing turns freely once the mounting bolt is loosened a bit, and i can't figure out how to get a grip on it to stop it from turning. does anyone have any advice about how to do this?

It shouldn't turn. Clean it up and have someone put a dab of weld on it. A spot of electric weld won't mess everything up with heat.
