Default Piston in caliper won't collapse...pls help me

I'm trying to change pads on a rear disc brake swap. I think they're 91 integra rear discs but the 94 pads were a match. The point is that my piston won't retract as I've done time and time again. It goes in slightly then stops. Used a c-clamp and is there something I'm missing like something to do with the e-brake(which isn't hooked up.) Is it just a bitch or is this a sign they're bad? Please help I need my car on the road in 3.5 hours.

For the 91 rear discs, you use a big flathead screwdriver or the tip of a crowbar to twist the piston just like a screw and it will go in. It's difficult to do, and it takes forever, but that's how they are made...they arent like front brake calipers that just float when you push them. Make sure you do not bind up the seal when you are turning it, lubing it first will help. Also make certain the little TAB on the back of the brake pad goes inside the groove or it wont sit flat against the rotor!

Yup, you don't push it in, you screw it in.
