When I did mine (1991 300SL ) I had no problem pushing the pistons in with a very large flat blade screw driver. There was ample clearance to install the new pads. As I recall, the piston can be moved in almost flush with the caliper surface. I would not suggest that you force the new pad in. Have you cleaned off all the surface rust? I wonder if the pads you have are thicker than originals? Did the old pads have shims? Do the new pads have shims? Don't forget the anti squeel paste.
